Thank you. I have been checked out by a doctor a bunch of times when having these. My psychologist and I are trying very hard to not go to the doctor. Next week I have my yearly well check. I will talk further to my doctor about my issues. I will try your online chat forums that you are suggesting. I would love to talk to other patients about this. I feel helpless today. I am going to try to get some work done which usually distracts me..In ways of letting the anxious thoughts flow through and not suppressing what is your suggestion. if I can start to do that more this may start to dissipate..
Kate,I hope you are well. I believe i have put in the ratings you needed to get credit. I wanted to touch base with you as I have been in good shape for a while but it seems the obsessions have come back in the past few weeks when I was under extreme job pressure. I am waking up and dealing with constant thoughts over my cardiac health , paying attention to every sensation and having a fear of dying. Is this normal that this would come back during high work stress time? It's all I think about unless I'm really really engaged in something else. Last night, however, I did go to a wedding and danced for hours. I was a bit winded afterward and got a little nervous but that did die down. Of course this morning when I woke up I was still a little bit scared. Thanks for your help!
