    Re: Heart Health Anxiety.... Again

    I can't shift this feeling that my heart is failing!
    I slept better last night than I have in days but woke up with my heart pounding. I thought the palps had eased but had another one while sitting on the sofa.
    Sometimes just getting up and walking to the kitchen makes my heart race.

    I do have some stressful things going on at the minute but I wouldn't say I'm actively stressed about them if that makes sense. So could this be subconscious?

    I'm finding it hard to believe this is just anxiety now. I genuinely think I'm about to drop down dead or something.

    Re: Heart Health Anxiety.... Again

    Sometimes we donít feel stressed or anxious but subconsciously we very much are and trust me, I didnít use to buy into that. A few years ago I lost my house and my family and I had to go live with my mother. I had an extremely hard time finding a place but I didnít feel overly stressed about it but in reality I was extremely stressed!!!!! I started dropping weight like crazy. Iím talking I lost over 30 pounds in less then a months time. I thought I was dying. My mom kept telling me it was stress but my brain just wouldnít accept it because I didnít feel overly stressed, I have felt more stressed in the past and didnít drop weight like this butttttt soon as I got into my new place I stopped losing weight and putting it back on.

    Is this true? Or did it pick something up and they've missed it?
    I had an ECG in the doctors surgery once. I'd developed White Coat Syndrome so my heart starts racing as soon as my @rse hits the seat of the waiting room chair!

    The result came back as abnormal (it was about 120) and the (new) nurse was flapping, as was I by then! I had to put my head between my knees I was hyperventilating so much!

    Then she got the doc in who looked at it and said in an almost bored way - absolutely fine - everything firing as it should do - just fast.

    Yeah. I'd been ripping off the chest pads and preparing to be whisked off in an ambulance...

    .... ten minutes later, I was in Starbucks having a brew!

    So, honestly, forget this one. The ECG would have picked up if there was a serious electrical issue. Fast heart rate in an otherwise healthy heart? Consider it a workout for your ticker!

    I know logically it probably won't happen but I just can't shake this feeling that my heart is just going to stop soon.

    I'm also having lots of sharp left sided chest pain. Lack of appetite etc; not even sure what it is. GERD? Gastritis? Stomach cancer?

    HA is the worst!
