Okay, to make a long story short, this whole past summer has been horrible, with everything from chest pains,palpitations,dizziness, near fainting,sweating,chills,vision problems, headaches,tingling,etc.etc.etc. i was diagnosed with Anxiety, which i already know. I constantly think i am dying, and fret over every symptom. well, recently, after i watched the movie Beaches. i have been feeling alot of palps,a little chest pain, and some breathlessness. actually, when i breathe out, it feels kind of like i want to cough. I am fearing cardiomyopathy,(since thats what she had in the movie) I had a baby in April, and that's when everything started. actully, my last couple of months of pregancy, a couple of times i felt like i was going to faint, never did though. and I always felt out of breath. i chalked it up to being pregnant. well, the day i got out of the hospital, i had a cough, just a dry cough and that's it, for a week. now, 5 months later, I got the almost fainting thing again a few times. and i get the chills too, like i have the flu or something. does it sound like what i think it is? or something serious? i have a big fear of death. BTW. i did have an ekg, but i'm going to the dr. today and going to demand and echo test. maybe more if they'll do it. any ideas, but try not to scare me too much. thanks, amanda
