So about 5 months ago my life turned upside down I have always been somewhat of a hypochondriac but now I was having visible symptoms I had a 40 day long period that messed up all my hormones I ended up with severe depression, and then came the headaches, I visited e.r. after e.r telling them these were not migraines but they kept sending me away then the heart palpitations came and my heartrate would not go below 120 laying so they hospitalized me and did an MRI while I was there and low and behold they found a pituitary tumor on my brain. But that isn't the worst of it because they have been toying with medications between birth controls bp meds and heart meds I had a reaction and now I am obsessing and I'm scared to eat anything in fear of anaphlaxis. Everytime I eat my tongue burns and I feel like my throat is closing so I panic and check my o2 sat. I just want to enjoy food again. I have exercise intolerance now due to the heartrate issue so I just want some normal back in my life I'm 28 years old this should not be happening
I'm just looking for someone to talk with that maybe a similar experience I want the fear of eating to go away but I just don't know how?

Hello everyone, I am new to the group, so I wanted to just put myself out there... I have a strange fear of choking to death on my food, I find myself struggling to eat because of it.. Everytime I eat, I go into a small panic attack and it literally feels like something is stuck in my throat. Has any one else felt this way before or is experiencing this currently??
