History repeats: Seems like history is repeating itself. Those things may be a good way to motivate yourself to get into CBT therapy and learn skills to avoid, reduce and manage anxiety. It works if you do and your whole long, healthy life will prove how worthwhile it was. ...Read more

Chest tightness: 4 months of chest pain and loss of balance. You need stress test and ekg . Sometimes stress test can be falsely negative. If pain persists you will need to rule out coronary artery disease. An angiogram is needed to prove or disprove coronary disease if pain is not relieved. ...Read more
