Heart racing

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been taking beater blockers for abit now only 10mg in morning and 10mg at night. They don't seem to be touching me. I have alot coming up and i suffer health anxiety anyways as well as underlining anxiety and depression .. Today iv had 30mg cus i feel like poo. My hearts still racing. I get scared but i don't think checking my paulse all the time is helping but i cant help it. I always think im going to have heart attack. I went to doctors toda and she's upped my dose to 40mg once a day so ill start that tmoz. I feel like i can't control my body. If had an ECG and its come back fine but im telling my self im not. Feel so poorly and just want reasurence because i know there's people out there suffering the same. I can do little activities and my heart races so fast. 😢😢 getting fed up now ..

    So your ECG was fine?

    What are you worrying about, then?

    What's the point of having tests then not believing the results?

      Im just scared i could be sat there relaxed and it races. I take deep breathes but never stop worrying and doesn't slow down always at a high race. I just think the worse. I had my blood pressure done today and it was fine and heart race was 90 Xx

      ....90 isn't bad for racing. Mine was 116 last time I was at the doctors. You're just overthinking it and making your heart work harder. (i so wish I could take my own advice! Lol)

    You gotta trust the doctors. I know it takes time but I've had ekg, chest xray, and blood test all fine. Just gotta try and calm yourself. The more you think about our the worse it gets..

    Don't look up symptoms and try to move around, today is my first day back at work in 4 days and my anxiety has already calmed down. When I was at home I was just thinking about everything and that doesn't help at all. Try some meditation, or try and do something that gets your heart rate up so it's fast for a reason and you may be able to calm down. It's the fight or flight response and if you aren't doing anything it's just addrenaline

    Calm!!! Your ecg is fine, you took your meds, I get the same way because I constantly feel like it's going fast.. What is it normally? Your anxiety is going to up your HR so just maybe read a book, concentrate on anything except that.. They said mine was also high but still in the normal range, but she said I could be put on meds if I want, but I opted not to. Just know that you're fine and just try some deep breathing. Do you have chamomile tea? I just started and it's known to reduce HR, although make sure to ask your doctor if you're on meds that already lower it.

    I think the first time my anxiety started to manifest was when I started checking my heart rate obsessively. I was about 13 I think. It followed a biology lesson on the heart. I was convinced my HR was higher than normal then kept re-checking.

    And to make it worse, I didn't share this with anyone.

    What you have they do not have medicines for, you're asking the Docs to treat your fear of falling down stairs, slipping off a cliff, or getting killed walking over the road at the lights, in other words you're mistaking OVER CAUTIONESS for an illness, you are going to have to take up swimming, bike riding, hanf gliding, running, tractor driving, camping alone in the woods and being a little dare-devil and to take one beta blocker each morning. Next time you report back I want you to tell us that going over Niagara Falls in a canoe was fun.
