Making this quick journal to say I'm sorry for taking forever on commissions but I'll need another day or two away from them. If you DON'T follow me on Discord, then, you won't know what's been going on and I'd rather not repeat myself and cause issues to escalate.
In short, something happened here that caused me to have several panic attacks over the course of about 2 days, and as of last night, I had a severe chest pain that started in the sternum and shot to the left side of my chest. I jokingly told my brother I was having a heart attack--and that's when the palpitations started. Now, I doubt I had a heart attack; in fact, when my anxiety/stress escalates I tend to get chest pains. But this was something weird. I THOUGHT it was heartburn at first but then it just suddenly WHAM and chest pains like crazy.
Woke up this morning and was immediately nauseous, like, 'I need to eat' nauseous, but also 'I'll probably barf' nauseous. Then the chest pains started again and they've been a slow, dull ache. I'll take some aspirin if it gets worse. I have no insurance so I can't go get checked out, and my sister told me to keep her posted since she's a nursing assistant and has dealt with this stuff before, her having anxiety as well.
That said, it's causing some fierce issues. Right now, I feel sick again and the chest pains are ebbing in and out. My heart rate is fine, no fever or anything. Just...pain and nausea. I'm not pregnant or anything like that, it's just sudden. I'll blame stress/trauma for it for now and see if it goes away. If it gets worse or stays until Friday, I'm going to the E.R.
