I'm 15 years old and have been suffering with bad depression and anxiety for the last year. It began with bad palpitations in my chest and it lasted for about 2 weeks non stop. It stopped after them 2 weeks and I began having panick attacks. It's now 2016 May 1 and for the past 2 weeks I have been scared to sleep as I fear something bad will happened to me. I wake up and my heart is racing my chest feels light and have weird sensations. I went to the doctors 2 weeks ago because of my palpitations and she took my blood pressure and assured me everything was fine. I'm scared to go to school in case something happens  to me , I don't have many friends and sit by my self in the libary. I'm having palpitations right now and have the feeling of needing to burp. I'm scared please tell me it's normal. I have to double check things also and hate going in public as I nearly fainted before. Please is their anything I can do. I'm frightens

Also I have really bad nightmares and have been suffering with back pain :(
the nightmares are probably nocturnal panic attacks which is normal with panic disorder.

Hi it sounds like you could have panic disorder. You should try and find a cognitive therapist in your area. They will be able to help you with the anxiety. Also, If you have back pain in the middle to upper part of your back its possible the pain could be radiating into your chest. I have had that before and I thought I was having a heart attack it was so painful.  Agida  can also cause chest pain and make you feel like you have to burp. Im sure all  these symptoms you are having is just causing you to panic more. You went to the doctor and she assured you you  were fine so I would try and calm down because you are just going to make the anxiety worse. I would defiantly find a cognitive therapist and make a appointment. They will evaluate you and take it from there. In the mean time try to relax. Good luck to you and I hope you are feeling better soon!
