What to do if there's constant fear of having a heart attack?

What to do if there's constant fear of having a heart attack?

Fear of Heart Attack: It is true that more men and women die of a heart attack than anything else. It isn't generally at age 35, though. I'm wondering what your family history is for cardiovascular disease, if you are obese, if you exercise or are sedentary, and what caused you to have this fear. Without knowing more, I can't say how grounded I think your fear is. ...Read more

What's causing me to feel constant sharp pain in the center of my chest but mostly to the left side? (Could it be mild heart attack) I hope not.

What's causing me to feel constant sharp pain in the center of my chest but mostly to the left side?  (Could it be mild heart attack) I hope not.

Not likely: It is impossible to rule out as heart being involved in your symptoms, but the character of the pain is not suggestive of cardiac origin. A simple test to determine the origin would be to gently push over the involved area. If your pain is worsened, it is chest wall related, specifically sternocostal joints or chest muscles. If that is not the case you may need a follow up with your doc. ...Read more

So worried about constant adrenaline surges. They make my chest tight. Is heart attack likely from these surges?

So worried about constant adrenaline surges.  They make my chest tight.  Is heart attack likely from these surges?

Surges: Well, those surges definitely aren't helping to prevent you from getting a heart attack. What are your other co-morbities? Are you diabetic? Do you have high cholesterol? Do you smoke? Does heart disease run in your family? Do you already have coronary artery disease? If you answer yes to all of these, I would definitely say yes. ...Read more

What is the best medicine for anxiety? I'm on celexa (citalopram) and it doesn't work. I have a constant fear of having a heart attack like my father.

What is the best medicine for anxiety? I'm on celexa (citalopram) and it doesn't work. I have a constant fear of having a heart attack like my father.

Caution: Be cautious with anxiolytics. They can help, but are best used short-term as they can be very addictive. Perhaps a better long term strategy would be to understand why you are so afraid the same thing will happen to you as happened to your father. Your risk factors may be entirely different and you may really not be at risk. Also, consider an increase in the Celexa (citalopram) if you are under 20 g a day. ...Read more
