Worrying weak sensation in chest? Anxiety? Heart issue?
I started experiencing palpitations 5 months ago, went A&E did chest scans couldn’t find anything, then saw a top cardiologist did Echo, 24 hr ECG, 24 hr Blood pressure monitor, Bruce treadmill tests etc and was told nothing is wrong (only occasional ectopics). My symptoms went away after this for a good few months but lately I’ve started to get a ‘worrying’ weak feeling in my chest.
This happens specially at night as soon as I close my eyes trying to sleep. Soon as I close my eyes or even whilst sitting and thinking my entire chest feels weak and I get a ‘worrying’ sensation as if something is to happen or if I’m about to lose air/oxygen. I’m not sure if this is anxiety or if its a physical symptom? Few doctors along the way told me its anxiety, one or two said it could be gastro-reflux, but since I’ve not been diagnosed and we’re stuck in a lockdown, not sure what to think of it. Might help adding that I do overthink everything, one small palpitation or pain and I’m thinking heart attack.
For a few months I also experienced something being stuck in my throat, doctors said its anxiety and surprisingly this went away and never came back.
I thought it might help posting it here and talking (then if it is anxiety this might help it). But if anybody has any suggestions, experiences or knows maybe if this is one thing or another would be highly appreciated.
