Last night I was up from 2:30 am to around 5 am. I could not go back to sleep for this long time. I felt discomfort but did not know exactly what it was. I was tossing and turning and at one point I think I was about to fall asleep however I felt a discomfort in my chest. I noticed my heart started raising and pounding. When I checked my Fitbit watch it showed 90 pulse rate while I was in bed. It started getting higher and last time I checked it was 104. At that point, I sat up and tried not to listen to my heartbeat. It was hard not to pay attention to the rapid beats because when you lay down I guess it is more noticeable. Yesterday I walked and I did my other regular activities. I had about 140000 steps altogether. I like keeping myself busty which keeps my mind away from the tension that something is wrong with me or with my heart. But this kind of episodes brings my anxiety back. I thought I would get a good night sleep but it was the other way. My palpitation was not for too long but I just don't know why it came to me last night. Exercise should help not to make us sick. I am a regular walker and even lately I started taking stairs too. I take about two flights of stairs when I can.
Do you think I should consult a doctor? Every time I go to him he talks about anxiety. I guess I am on my own. I am sad and don't know why I am going through this Thanks to all.
