I occasionally get pains in the center of my chest. They are dull and they come and go. Ever since I was in college and anxiety and depression really started to take a toll, I have been afraid of having a heart attack. For some reason the idea of it terrifies me. I am 35 years old, and as far as I know, in perfect health. My eating is not the healthiest, but not terrible, and I do not smoke. Whenever I get any minor pain in my chest or my left side, I think I’m doomed and I get very anxious. This is crazy, I know! Does anyone else have this fear? If so, any recommendations on how to combat it would be very helpful. Does anyone recommend physical tests to rule out heart problems?
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
