Hello, I’m new here.

I have been searching for support, understanding, someone to describe these ‘episodes’ that keep consuming me, completely out of nowhere.

This morning I was feeling good, great even. I was sitting working on my laptop, laughing at a netflix show. No stress, not thinking about anything.
BOOM.
This rushing feeling in my chest, almost a burning like heartburn but weirder (have had the cold water pouring feeling before) complete jelly/weakness in my legs, feeling sick and needing the toilet all at once, my heartbeat fast and pounding and irregular. Cold sweat and shivering.
I can’t sit still, I have to move around, but my legs feel like they won’t hold me up.

I am convinced this is it. I am having a heart attack, it must be, I am crying and waiting to collapse.

After about half an hour, it subsides but I am left feeling shaky and cold and completely drained and exhausted and I sleep for 1-2 hours.

It always leaves me so unsure - should I go to hospital!?? Been there twice before hooked up to an ECG and had blood-tests to be sent away ‘healthy’ and feeling a fraud.

It’s destroying my confidence and my life as I am so scared of it happening 😔😔😔😭

Please reach out and share similar experiences if you can - I am so scared.

Wishing you all well 🙏❤

I had the same symptoms when I started having full blown panic attacks and the hospital used to laugh cause I came in so much frightened but like you everything was always fine. I was actually hooked up to heart monitor I could feel one coming on I was telling at them to pay attention my heart rate went from 90 to 150 in seconds. I could literally feel the blood rushing through my body. I knew I was dying. But I always came out of it. I heard they are scarier than an actual heart attack. I don't know if this helps but I've been in your shoes and can relate.

Thank you so much for responding - it is such a relief to hear this and I am so sorry you are also suffering :(
How often do you get the bad attacks??

I literally get them from the fear of the next one. Now they have started in my sleep. They are scary.
