Hello! I'm 23 years olds and a health anxiety sufferer, just lately it's been my heart with the chest pains, missed/skipped heart beats (I've had every test possible, some multiplate times and all have come back fine) I work in an office 8-5 mon-fri, so it's hard to take your mind off it cause im not busy/active doing something. For some reason I had a random idea that maybe cutting out my caffiene would maybe help with the skipped beats/palpitations since caffiene does stimulate heart rate etc?
I don't drink loads of caffiene anyway, I have maybe 3 cups of tea (im english, so has to be done haha) but i thought i'd try cut it out and see if it makes me things a bit better. I did it for a couple of days and things we're a lot better in terms of palpitations and stuff, i don't know if its just physiological or whether it does actually help when you've got anxiety with your symptoms. But now unfortuantly when ever i have a cup of tea i get anxiety that i'm going to have palpitations again!
Has anybody else cut out caffiene and found it helps?
