I am totally panacking. About 6 weeks ago I had to walk up some stairs and got totally breathless and then panicked and thought I was having a heart attack.

So six weeks later I am still having chest pains. The problem is it is only when I think of it that I am getting it. I am booked in for a stress echo on friday and am freaking out about it as well. Today I was doing some course and had no chest pain the whole time, but now I get home and feel pain and breathless again. What is going on with me. I am petrified I am dying.
