Hey,

these are my symptoms.

Chest pains, in the center of my chest, on the left side at any part of my breast, in my shoulder or shoulder blade in the back or the front. These pains are temporary but shrpe and reoccur.

My heart does not feel right sometimes, it can start beating that i can feel it even if im sitting or lying down. And if i do anything while that happens it elevates quickly. I get heart palpataions alot, some are small some are really bad and feel almost as my heart has stopped.

Sometimes in the day, my mind is a bit foggy, its not dizzeyness but just a feeling of not being 100%.

I have stomach issues, alot of the time when these symptoms happen, ill get some stomach pains on the left lower and upper parts, these are sharp but temporary. And i will soon after feel the need to go to the toilet.

I get pins and needles in my arms easily, my left arms achs sometimes. Sometimes if my arms are above my head the blood will run out very quickly, sometimes they are fine.

I'm having anxiety issues because of these. I do have a history of anxiety, but lived and learned to notice the symptoms and control them. But these symtoms are scary and triggers my anxiety.


All the doctors i have gone to say its anxiety, i have all blood tests possible, and only major issue was a high colestorol level, but it is actually the american average. 120 or so i think.

I do smoke, and dont get alot of excersise. I sit at a computer alot, and the only thing that seems to help the issues is hydrating alot and asprin.

Hope you guys can help.

  • Hey, I forgot to mention my neck issues. I get alot of neck pain, mainly at the back of my head beneath my skull. Lately its on the left side at the back or my neck, and causes pains in the from of my head between my eye and my temple. Sometimes i just get the in the front of my head, sometimes just the neck pain. Alot of the time this will lead to a bad headache, and ill have to sleep or take painkillers to relieve it. Doctor has put this down to stress, but im not so sure.

  • Something you have overlooked is sitting at the computer....do you wear glasses and look through bi-focals? Or does your workspace sit you proerly? You may be tilting your head back and holding a constant position for long periods of time which will case this. Also you can get dry eyes when you forget to blink staying at the computer screen. Practice looking away from the screen very frequently and consciously blink...use artificial tears when your eyes are tired. But make sure you get the right chair, desk, monitor combination for your height. My son kept running to the emergency room with spells thinking he was having a heart attack it seemed so real. He had all these symptoms. It was stress/anxiety. Zanax was his lifesaver. He also started walking around the building and doing stretches at least once every two hours while working on the computer. it sounds so simple but this actually worked for himIf we listen to our bodies, they speak to us. sometimes it is the simple things....then again maybe not.
