Overthinking the heart



New member

I’ve always had health anxiety but in the last 3 weeks it has led on to me overthinking it To point I’m uncomfortable with the fact that my own heart constantly beats inside of me and because of the way it looks I try to invision what my heart is doing and I’m almost uncomfortable with the fact that this thing inside of me beats until the day I die can anyone relate or reassure me that my anxiety is doing this

Anxiety is about worrying, so worrying about your heart is understandable, although I've never heard before of such anxiety. Just know that your heart can beat until you're 100 years old (or older). It'a an amazing organ you really don't have to worry about.

Whilst ive never had a health anxiety I can assure you that if it stopped you would find that much more disconcerting. Older awake open heart surgeries stopped the heart, that had to feel so strange.
