Hello I am a 23 year old male and have had anxiety problems for over 2 years now and they are just getting worse.it's not just random attacks but almost constant worry or fear primarily of having a heart attack. I have been to the er several times and always have good blood work, ekgs, xrays, and have even had a heart cath. I am obsessed with checking my blood pressure and worry even when it's just a little high and always checking my pulse. I have chest discomfort every night some times sudden sharp pains and sometimes constant dull pains. Sometimes they are accompanied by shortness of breath and other times feeling like I'm going to pass out. I still worry that I may have a heart problem even after all my good test and would say that having a heart attack is my worst fear in the world. I play basketball once a week and am outdoors climbing hills quite frequently and am pretty good shape. All my anxiety started back over two years ago when I lost my best friend to a car crash and hav had several stressful situations since. I am so tired of worrying and always catch myself wishing I was "normal" and didn't have this constant anxious feeling. I have just rambled on now but this is the first time I have posted to a thread and I have read several and they do help so I was wondering if anyone could relate to me exactly.
