Hi, Long story short

6 weeks ago i was coimg to home driving car and my heart started poundung and felt like i am having heart attack and i stoped the car and managed to went to nearest shop they called me an ambulance and i was short of breath and shaking and on and on... Paramadis came and put the ecg machine and check blood pressure and it was ok thats what they said and the they bring me to ER and had blood test and chest X-Ray everything was normal and then they send me after week for stress test it was ok but because of family heart hostory my cardiologist sent me for Heart angiogram and everything was ok.

    Take solice in knowing your heart is ok after the tests. The key one you have had there is the Angiogram. That is pretty much the main test so ensure there are no blockages and that blood is going in and out the heart. Youve had the rolls royce test :-)

    Now its about dealing with the mind and how the anxiety tries to make us beleive somethings wrong by simply amplfying every effect in the body.

      I have only been taking Citalopram for a little over a week and I am feeling better already. Perhaps because I am on a very low dose of Ativan to help. I take a total of 1 1/2 pills a day of .5mg so getting 1.20mg a day

      I take the 1/2 Ativan when I wake up around 6am, the other half around 12 or 1pm and then another 1/2 about 7pm. Since the pill is such a low dose I don't think the withdrawal will be so bad at some point. But right now I could care less about withdrawal because I am feeling at least 50-60% better. And seem to be improving a little bit each day.
