Lately i often feel that my heart's going to stop. I cant sleep well at night and often woke up terrified in the middle of the sleep as if my breathing and heart's gonna stop. I have not been working since October as i cant focus on my work and i cannot sleep early and wake up feeling lethargic. This lately i keep on feeling that my heart is going to stop any time and soon after my blood pressure will increase and heart will start beating fast. Only my sister understood how i felt. My husband will just ignore and take it as if nothing happens. Im often left alone at home as he is working shift.
I really recommend you to go to a therapist. I'm sure they can help you.
But also, I recommend reading a book about your condition. I suffered from a season of panic attacks and I have read a book that talks about how to get rid of them. It helped so much because it gave me hope every day while teaching me a little bit about how to stop them.
I recommend looking up a book on worry or anxiety. I've been going to therapy and also taking meds. But out of all that, reading about my condition helped me the most.
I totally understand your feelings as I my self get the thoughts and feelings that my heart is going to stop all the time and also stopped me from working for over 2 months..
It's a horrible feeling and symptom of anxiety.. while having this symptom iv had numerous ecg's and blood work done and all come back normal..
I also have stomach problems which causes weird pains and sensations in my chest that makes it worse.
I have to keep telling myself that everything is ok with my health and my heart won't stop but it's a struggle everyday to get on with things..
You are not alone with this
I feel your pain. This week has been awful for me. To the point of calling off yesterday and today. I just can't think of leaving my house, and sitting all day at work. Sadly I have no choice, so tomorrow I have to go in. I'm a single mom with a daughter in college and have no back up. So tomorrow....ugh...I want no bills and no worries. Luckily my "neighbor" at work has the same issues as I do so I know she'll talk me through the day. It's hard for people without major anxiety to understand how bad it can be.
