    Constant Fear of Heart Attack


    My name is Hector and I am a 31 year old male and I am in constant fear of having a heart attack. It seems my brain has become OCD about it, every thing I feel, think, or do somehow my brain ties into that. It has become so hard to live life at times, I just have this fear of dying and that it will be by a heart attack. I have moments where things are ok, but for the most part I live my life worrying and fearful of this. I don't know how to stop it. I need help, have no medical insurance and just want to get over this so I can live my life once again!

    Hello Hector,

    I suffered from panic and anxiety attacks for 16 years, used the chat room here for about a year and suddenly the panic stopped ! Been great for two years but suddenly it's all back again and my biggest fear is that I am having a heart attack. Let me know if you're better now or if I can help, been through this all before and I know how real it all seems. Sometimes just talking and knowing someone else is going through the same thing helps ...

    Take care

    So sorry to hear about you both living like this - I know it is hell. I had it first hand. I can tell you that I've been a member of a face to face support group and have met literally hundreds of people who have panic - more than half of them focused on their heart... and none of them had real heart problems... I know how real it feels... it's pretty terrible... it does go away though... eventually it does go away...
