Stop me if you heard this but..

Does anyone ever get the feeling that you are just going to drop dead on the floor?? Or a sick feeling in your chest like your heart went bad and is about to stop right there? I mean, i've been tested up the you know what and been told that i'm "good to go" or that i'm completely healthy but why do i not feel that way? I have this crazy fear about dying when i'm not and complete health anxiety and i just can't figure out if the anxiety and stress make me feel all these weird sensations and then i just panic badly about them or if i'm actually gonna die's making me crazy!

Anybody out there that can relate?

Re: Stop me if you heard this but..

do not monitor or check your body, a self help book on how to stop worrying should help

your problem is mostly hypochondria, google it

Re: Stop me if you heard this but..

YES! You sounds just like me! I am in therapy for anxiety and panic disorder. Right when my eyes open in the morning, I begin thinking about dying and am certain that "today will be the day." Obviously I haven't reached my day yet, but I can't get the thought out of my head, and picturing the senario: how it will feel, happen, who will find me? I absolutley hate it!! Just wanted you to know, I completley relate!

Re: Stop me if you heard this but..

I am exactly the same way. I have to stop checking my temperature or blood pressure, etc. I went to the grocery store to get a prescription filled and started to panic. I began to feel "not myself" and my eyes got blurry; I thought I was going to pass out. I thought, "This is it. This time I am going to pass out in front of all these normal, happy people". So I stood there, waiting, and got dizzy. I checked my blood pressure at those free checking stations and my heart rate was 116. My blood pressure was 130/75 or something. It said I was hypertensive. My blood pressure has always been perfect. I broke down crying in the middle of the store! The pharmacist tried to reassure me that my blood pressure went up because I was having a panic attack, but I couldn't calm down. I cried hysterically, my life flashing before my eyes.

So yes, I can totally relate. It's such a horrible way to live life. I love life so much and I wish my body would agree and not freak out so much! :P

Hope it gets better for you!

Re: Stop me if you heard this but..

Yes, I absolutely 100% feel that exact same way. Tiffany, you explained how I feel perfectly as well. It actually made me tear up to read this because it makes me so upset that anyone should have to feel this way. On on hand, I like to know I'm not alone, but on the other hand, I wouldn't wish these feelings on my worst enemy. As it is, I am sitting up at 1am because I was laying in bed and felt like I was going to die or my heart was going to now I'm just trying to calm down. I wish I had some advice, but I really don't! I hope you all feel better.

Re: Stop me if you heard this but..

I can totally relate to you, I'm at work right now and I can't stop thinking about my heart rate and my breathing. Just like Charmbracelet81 said, the moment I wake up in the morning, too, I start thinking "this is it, this is going to be the day when I just stop breathing and drop dead". It is horrible, catastrophic thinking and I hate it. So I hope it makes you feel better to know that you're not alone in this.

Re: Stop me if you heard this but..

I totally agree. I feel the same way. I am still having those issues because I was driving a couple weeks ago when I had these feelings. I went to ER and they said anxiety or blood sugar low. I had to have my cousin drive me home and I have been scared to drive ever since then. I can take dirt roads and do fine but if I get on highway I start getting scared. Don't know if it was switching from paxil to lexapro and back to paxil? Anyway I am sorry to hear others going through the same thing but then again at least I know its not just me.
