    Question Heart

    I sometimes experience heart pulpations. I don't feel dizzy or nausea but I do feel like I can't breath anymore and I have to sit down for a few seconds to pass.
    After these pulpations I feel a sort of pain around my chest for the rest of the day and I wonder if this is something serious or just another symptom of anxiety.

    It is really terifying because to me it feels like I am having a heartattack. I am really afraid that there is something wrong with my heart. I feel like I can't do any exorcises or movement at all in fear of feeling your heart racing again. Should I be worried by this because I am now even afraid to go outside in fear of a heartattack.

    I too have a fear of this, but after I started taking my meds and got my anxiety some what in control my heart palps stop for the most part. I don't drink caffeine, and I stay away from any sugars as much as I can.

    If you're really worried, just go have a check up with your doctor if you haven't. I'm sure you're ok

    Chest pains, palps.. quite common with anxiety, and quite scary as I've been there! ..But firstly, have you had a check up from the doc? I'm sure it's nothing serious, but we can say that all day to ourselves and not believe it. So the reason to get a check up is that it will really help put the mind at ease; it certainly helped me to go to the doc and hear from him, "You have a healthy heart."

    Yes, it is quite terrifying to the point you are afraid to move --But you shouldn't be worried! Easier said than done, right? But more than likely it is anxiety.

    I had a heart check 3 years ago but they found nothing back then.

    I just want to be totally sure that there is nothing wrong with my heart so I think I will go to the doctor to monitor my heart longer than a few seconds to see that there is nothing wrong. I think only after that I can become calm about it.
    Thank you for the advice.

    Yes it is indeed terrifying and I think only a check up can calm my mind. I just really hope it is nothing serious.
    I don't drink any caffeine or eat a lot a sugar (I also don't drink soda) But I rather stay away from medicine because last time I tried, it only made my panic worse.
