I had pain in my chest, was sweating, had sweaty palms, etc... This was also the first time I started seeing like little black "stars", it sort of looked like bugs flying around. This has never happened to me and quite honestly scared the hell out of me.

I got home from work and fell asleep in the recliner at 5:30, I was suffering from what was obviously an adrenaline dump from being on edge for 12+ hours.

Hoping to get help but also afraid to find out I may have something worse than could have been imagined. I'm not thinking that way but it sure seems that I am not suffering from normal worries or anxiety...
Get off your ass and go see someone. The simple act of doing this will make you feel remarkably improved.....

Re: Medical Advice / Suggestions Needed

I am not a doctor but the symptoms sound like classic anxiety disorder, which can manifest itself physiologically in the form of elevated blood pressure and racing heart beat. If your blood pressure is high that can explain the 'seeing stars', and a faster than normal heartbeat combined with blood pressure can cause chest pain.

Make sure you tell the doctor about all the symptoms. He'll first rule out any heart or neurological problems.

You could benefit from talking with a psych. Also, keep an open mind if the doctor suggests an anti-anxiety med. My wife deals with anxiety disorder; medicines really help her feel normal. Psych issues often tem from simple chemical issues in the brain, a lot of the time medicines can rebalance the chemistry and eradicate the symptoms.

Good luck and I hope you feel better. Seeing the doc is the right thing, they can do something about this and take the weight off your shoulders. Might as well move on to the first day of the rest of your life.
