I'm new to this site but I've been monitoring it the past month , I'm a 16 year old male and previously had a traineeship as a personal trainer. I use to be a very active kid , playing footy , doing weights etc.. But the past 2 months I've been through a living hell I use to be the HAPPIEST kid in the world up until 2 months ago when the pain started...I went to the ER and I had the EKG , blood tests , heart ultrasound etc and they said nothing was wrong. So I saw my GP and he was confident I had anxiety.
Every ache and pain I get I think the worst , I've the lump in the throat choking feeling , the stabbing and worrying chest Pains , the aching left arm , jaw and back pain , the tingling in my hands and I'm just so so scared , my family try telling me , my doctor tries telling me that it's anxiety and they promise I won't die no matter how terrible the pain , I sometimes cry myself to sleep the pain scares me that much and nobody should live like that especially at a young age , my dad and sister too have anxiety and I ask them about my symptoms and they tell me they experience the same but I still get scared.
I just feel comfort coming to this forum and seeing I'm not the only one out there , every time I get the pains I still get very scared and worried thinking I'm dying but I come to this forum and I just feel abit better and I was just hoping if you guys could please give me a few stories of the symptoms that youse all encounter to remind myself that It won't kill me I would deeply appreciate it ALOT. Thank you.
