Posted , 7 users are following.

I had a 24 hour heart trace recently. I fully believed my symptoms were anxiety related but were uncomfortable . I didn't always have symptoms

Been to doctors today who say I have beats of 140 min & then I sometimes miss one & that I need to see a cardiologist. I no convinced i'm gunna have a heart attack!! I already suffer from at times severe anxiety/nerves. Can anybody help?

    Dear ejc

    Sorry to hear about your heart fears

    I suffer irregular beats but very rarely fast beats however when they do strike they are scary.

    No medication I have tried has worked

    All on this site seem to be told if there is no physical problem with your heart there's not a lot can be done about ectopic but they are rarely serious so that's all we can take comfort in

    Good luck with any checks you have

    I suffer with anxiety attacks and have experienced fast heart rate of 132+, I also am sure my heart skips a beat at times, I've had bloods, X-Ray and ECG scans and all came back clean, I was told it is not uncommon for a heart to skip beats, and that they do go unoticed but with many anxiety sufferer's they seem to be noticeable, if you've had your heart checked out and all is OK, you should be fine, it could just be youthe makeup.

    It its of any help, I was rushed into A&E with a heart rate of 240+ BPM (ventriculatr tacicardia with a flutter). They swiched me off twice and restarted me, but it made no difference. They gave me a pill and that sorted me out. I was released a week later to retun in 4 weeks to have a heart ablation. There were 3 rouge heart rhythms. The ablation cleared 2 of them and tablets for the outer one. 

    Just take it easy and relax. If you are very worried then I would go to A&E. smile
