I'm a 17 year old male in very good physical condition. Bear with me because I do like to ramble on, but only to further inform you on my conflict.
I was overcome with the fear of having a heart problem last month because of a first-time, and random heart palpation episode which triggered obvious stress on my self and outlook on life (causing future palpitations, dizziness, fatigue, and rapid heart rate...etc). I have done some tests and have been told that everything is completely fine with my heart and health - just to avoid stressful situations as best i can and try and search for relaxation techniques.
I have been doing pretty well with dealing with these anxiety issues since assuring myself by a few doctors and fathers opinion. I started to see improvements in my symptoms, but I still have many of the same issues that are not as severe but still linger and bother me.
These are my lingering symptoms that may occur together or seperatley at different times:
-Strong Dizziness and minor headaches throughout the day (mostly during/after strenuous exercise but can be triggered by a simple walk to the bathroom as well)
-Higher than usual heart rate while doing exercise (reaching up to 180 at some points)
-a gassy feeling in my chest usually after eating - doesn't really feel like heart burn (ant-acids seem to help)
-A feeling of trouble breathing that happens throughout the day
-Minor palpitations that occur usually only once every few days
I find it hard to believe that anxiety has effected me this long even though I feel I have overcome the worst of the symptoms.
So I am just wondering if anybody can relate to these symptoms or explain why or how this is happening. and if it is significantly effected by my stress.
Thanks for your help, and i apologize for the long post lol.
