basically, i either have a heart problem, or im paniced for no reason. So I wanted to write out my symptoms to see whether panic or problem is more likely.

25 year old, male. For some reason, my heart will suddenly feel wrong. or feel like it feels wrong. it "feels" as if it stopped, but ive never had any real evidence of this. I measure my pulse when it does and theres no change from normal.

The pain isnt alays there. some days i manage to ignore it and do fine. other days (like today0 it spirals out of control. Ill get bursts of panic and shaking fear, but mostly a long, drawn out nervousness at hair trigger. this fades away as soon as i manage to distract myself. But my shoulder and back and neck hurt a lot.

Is this a panic thing? If I had been having a real heart problem like above (stopping and restarting randomly) for the past 12 months, would I show any obvious symptoms of such a problem? Because I dont. just the fear. and the chest/neck strain.

so yeah...Is this more likely to be a panic thing thatn anything else? also I have a bowel disorder that can make me cramp too. Im just really nervous right now, despite having been this way for the past 300 days.
