Tonight was without a doubt the scariest night of my life. Today I was driving home and I thought I had indigestion and didnít think a lot of it, but it didnít go away and naturally I started to get a bit worried. It was like a pain right in the centre of my chest. There is a history of heart disease in my family and I was really starting to get worried. I am 25 so am still very young to have a heart condition but you can imagine when you are in that situation all sorts of thoughts go through your mind. I eventually calmed myself down and decided I should go to bed and when I woke in the morning all would be ok. I was lying down trying to relax when I had what I can only describe as a panic attack. I just had to sit upÖ It almost seamed to happen as a reflex action. It was then that I realised I would need to go to the hospital. I drove up and went into A+E. I was seen straight away and had the general tests carried out, Blood pressure, pulse etc. They then said they wanted to do an ECG. At this point I convinced myself they though something was wrong. About 20 mins later another nurse came in and said she would like to carry out the ECG again. This just got me even more worried Another 20 mins later the doctor came back in and said ďim 90% sure that the pain is muscle related, but I am 100% sure that it is not anything to do with your heart, your heart traces where fine. I have never been so relived in all my life.
