A member asked:

I am 23 years old. due father's death got severe heart/health anxiety. my doc did 5ecg2chestxray, thyroid test & esrcbc all normal. sometimes i got rapid hb, sleepdisorder, lightheadedness and weakness, during playing/running didn't feel any thing?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

About anxiety...: That is the curse of having health anxiety. Normal bodily sensations and abnormal bodily sensations all are perceived as signs of illness... making it very difficult for the patient or a doctor to tell when the patient is actually sick (other than suffering from health anxiety). The patient must teach himself which of his pains, his cramps, his sniffles, etc., are normal. His primary Dr. can help.
