I went to the E.R twice in the past two weeks and I went to two different hospitals. I am 20 years old. The first time I went to the ER with chest pain, they did an EKG, x-ray, blood work and put me on the monitor for two hours. Everything came back fine and they sent me home. The doctor said everything looked good.
Well, the second time I went to a different hospital and did all the same tests and the doctor came back and said everything looked great and I should not worry. He sat down and talked to me and my husband for about 30 minutes. He said he is pretty sure of what I am feeling is bad anxiety because I was in a bad car accident about five months ago. I hardly leave the house and he said it might be a depression sitting in with anxiety because I am just sitting at home and not doing what I normally do and go out. He said another thing, I have two small kids and lifting them and playing with them can cause aches and pains.
My chest still hurts only when I am lifting something or moving my arm or body in the wrong way. I also think I am a hypochondriac because ever since my chest first started hurting that is all I think about, then new things pop up like headaches, back pain, neck, shoulders, ribs and I keep having to use the bathroom and it is runny. I keep thinking something is wrong and my husband and family keeps telling me I am fine. Two doctors said I am fine and I am just over reacting which is making my body tense into thinking something is wrong. Can that really happen? I do not have any health insurance so it is hard to just up and go to the doctor. I just want some reassurance.
