Fear of sudden cardiac arrestWatch this thread
Make an appointment with your GP. Do it today. If it were just the racing heart, shaking etc that would suggest anxiety and panic attacks. However the colouring in your legs is a more tangible sympton that could suggest something to do with your circulation. Go and see your GP and get professional input - it's probably nothing to worry about, but they are better placed than any of us to determine that.
Yes but the trouble is I've already had two appointments in the last week because of my health anxiety and booking another one would just be embarrassing. I just really wish that I'd gone to my GP back in October
Have you tried therapy like CBT for your health anxiety? Because anxiety can manifest with physical symptoms, it often really helps to sort out the cause of the anxiety. https://www.thebritishcbtcounselling...-guide-to-cbt/
I want to try therapy for it but right now I'm not worried about physical symptoms as such because I don't currently have any right now I'm worried about a condition that increases your risk of sudden cardiac risk and these conditions can be asymptomatic. And right now I don't know what to do I'm so scared the only thing that would help would be getting an echocardiogram/ecg or something to check for any problems but as I don't have any symptoms I can't really do that. But at the same time what happened in October even though it didn't scare me so much at the time is now making me more worried but its not like I can book a GP appointment for something that happened months ago. But I am so stressed and anxious because this new fear is stopping me revising for my A levels and I'm worried about my grades being affected. But like I said right now the only thing that will calm me down would be getting an actual medical test to check everything is ok. But then again even that might not help because my health anxiety might find another thing to worry about.
It’s much more likely.
Please try and book an appointment with a therapist.
