Heart condition or anxiety attack

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am 25 years old and i am an IT Student.

I work in computer for almost 10hours per day and resting after it. i dont have much time to exercise.

Lately I am having a heart palpitation and i am consious about it.

After a month it was replaced by a flickering pain into my chest and it is changing to different location into my heart part. But it has no effect to my breathing. I am breathing just fine.

from that on, I exercise daily 5-15min cardio per day.

I still got the flickering feeling in my heart. i rate the pain 2/10. it is sudden pain then it will go away. I am feeling this for 2 weeks already.

Give me some advice. thank you

    Describe the pain? And does it last for like half a second or more like 10 seconds+

    Like fluttering heart palpitation, sharp stabbing, or a racing heart that you're aware of palpitation?

      That great! Haha well not great, but if it occurs when laying or sitting in certain positions, dosnt act up during exercise, and dosnt last for minutes on end and Coke and goes sounds like anxiety for sure but you may have minor inflammation of the rib cage or heart lining

      I've had both and they both go away on they're own, if it last for over 2 weeks I would go to the doctor for antibiotics as they will tell you it's either pericarditis or inflammation of the rib age (can't recall name right now) or anxiety

      I believe it's minor muscler pain as I've had all the symptoms as you and was diagnosed it comes every couple years so dosnt bother me to much and the pain isn't that bad unless I lay on my left side

      So don't worry! Sharp pain right in the heart is good because it's hardly ever the heart

      Palpitations that last for less then a minute are good! :p hope you heal up soon!

      After reading some anxiety attack cases here in Patient, the pain is gone after almost 2 weeks straight of daily exercise. and for not focusing in my heart if i feel the pain.

      Thank you and I will not stop exercising regularly.
