anxiety/stress issues plus possible heart problem

Posted , 4 users are following.

Today I have been signed off with stress. I am being treated for svt although no definite diagnosis yet. I have not had an 'episode' for 2 months until weds when fortunately I was wearing a monitor. Ir lasted an hour & a half beforw I got the ok to take meds. Bpm was 130+

Tightness in chest & short of breath yesterday which is normal for me.

Today however I woke up feeling worse & pretty much spent the morning crying because I feel I've got no control over it.

I've had a rubbish few weeks & think the build up of stress caused me to snap.

Now I wonder if its all just been panic attacks & the drs are barking up the wrong tree.

I'm only stressed over work, my partner needs a minor op, my toddler has been abit poorly & I think the final thing that did it was my grandad dying.

I seem to worry about everything I can't stop however much I try.

Sorry for going on I need to get it off my chest. I finally admitted today I'm struggling & I feel so stupid in a way.

Can anyone help with tips to get me out of this rut? I need to overcome this asap smile
