Why is it that after i eat i get anxiety, with pressure on my chest and rapid heartbeat. Then i worry of having a heart attack. I live in constant fear of dying. I feel my heart beating on my finger tips. Im a truck driver and it hits me on the road alot. When i lay down i feel my heart pounding hard with chest pains and pressure. Does anybody go thru what i go thru or am i just going crazy? I been to the hospital alot and everything comes out normal. I hate living like this because it stops me from being myself.

    Yeah anxiety changes a person. Thats definite.

    Have you seen a GP and checked all this out? That might be a good idea for you. You want to make sure your sugar levels are okay and everything is all clear and then you can ask about the anxiety too.

      Thats good. your heart does speed up after you eat. I wonder if you are just really self aware from your anxiety? Have you learned how to belly breathe? Bellybio app can helo teach you. It would help self calm you a bit.

    Hi Alfonso - are you on any medication at all?

    Yes, a lot of people go through what you're going through, so you're not alone at all.

    That doesn't make it easy to deal with, though. It's very hard to accept that you have anxiety, not  a heart attack, when the symptoms seem so real.

    Hope you find a way out of this. Therapy helps a lot of people, aand coming off tranquillisers helps, too, if you're on any.

    love Tess xx
