I've been on here a couple of times regarding my anxiety. I've been experiencing palpitations a lot more recently and struggling with it a lot. I'm having them daily..not all the time but maybe 2-3 days in a row I'll have them. I'm on the birth control pill lucette and was taken off Yasmin due to my doctor no longer supplying them due to the increase risk in blood clots. Before having my 2 year old I was in full time work and never noticed palps, maybe the odd one around my period but that was it...I've had anxiety since being young (I'm 28 now) and when hitting the age of 18 on wards I hardly suffered at all...but now I'm a stay at home mummy it's gotten a lot worse! I worry about everything health related! My heart mainly. I've had one ECG and results came back fine. I have shortness of breath and they gave me an asthma test and again came back fine. Now I'm constantly living in the fear my heart will stop any moment and I'll die! I never used to be scared of death or even thought about it but now it's on my mind constantly. I can be fine all day then BANG!! I'll have a palpitation and that's it I'm back in the horrible place. My poor husband has to listen to me as does my sister but I don't want to have to be a pain no more (not that they ever say I am). I don't know if the birth control pill is bringing on my palps or if it's anxiety. I don't feel ill with them or dizzy out like that!! I have shortness if breath a lot but more when I'm worrying. I don't know what to do anymore. Should I speak with a doctor? I don't fancy going on pills tho.
