Stress - Physical Symptoms
I have what my doctor calls a general anxiety disorder due to perimenopause. It is making me crazy. I can't sleep at night without taking a pill because my mind races but also because the physical symptoms are so scary.
It always feels like I am having a heart attack. I have tightness and pain in my chest, sometimes pain in my throat and numbness in my arm.
I have had 2 ekgs this year and a stress test and all was normal.
So my question is if the symptoms are the same as a heart attack how will you know if you are really having a heart attack. That is what I am agraid of most.
Thanks for any insight.
