I really don’t want to alarm anyone, and I know how this may sound but I think it is all in my head, since I have had similar health delusions about various diseases and disorders that all have turned out to be false alarms.
My voices are trying to get me to believe that I’m having a heart attack, when I have no symptoms of one. The only thing I’m feeling is a tiniest of pinch in my heart, like it’s increasing heart rate, but I think it’s my body trying to react to the idea of having a heart attack. I looked online on various medical sites for symptoms of a heart attack in women and I literately have none. It almost feels more like an anxiety attack than a heart attack. But I’m not anxious about anything. Not really.
My voices have tried to convince me of other aliments in the past. During my biggest relapse I believed I had gotten crabs because there was a rumor they found it in the woman’s bathroom (but never confirmed, just the closing of the main bathroom as they cleaned it). It turns out I didn’t have it. The one point I had a like a pimple like thing on my breast, which turned out to just be a pimple…I get them from time to time I think from sweating in that area. They aren’t hard and or frequent, nothing to concern about. So is this just another case of my voices trying to get the better of me with the heart attack thing?
The more I think about it, the more I think it is the voices. Even the irregular heart beating has stopped…gone away. But I still feel anxious. I think I need to go find something to distract myself with. My question now mainly seems to be does anyone else have a problem with their voices/delusions trying to get them to think they have additional illnesses when they don’t?
