Okay, so it all started about two months ago. I started having chest pain, in the middle of my chest/left side. So I did some tests. I did an acid reflux test, thyroid test, chest X-ray,breast ultrasound, and Ekg/ecg. And blood pressure is good! All came back normal. But the chest pain was still there. So my doctor ordered heart tests. I did an echocardiogram, 2 week heart monitor and I will be doig a stress test in 2 weeks. I don't get my results for any of these until the 21st of January. I keep thinking something is wrong with my heart! It's all I think about now. I feel like it will just stop working or I'll have a heart attack! So about two weeks ago now, I started checking my pulse. And it got to the point where I started checking like 40 times a day. I bought a pulse reader and I used an app on my phone. (Which is surprisingly accurate) and did it manually as well. Now my heart is always racing. Going 90-100. Usually it would be going in the 70's. I had a really bad panic attack on Jan 1, where my heart rate was 160 and I called an ambulance because I thought I was dying. They did some tests and They told me it was just anxiety. Now I can't get my heart rate to my normal 70's. It's always going around 90. Which I know 60-100 is normal range. But it's still on the high end. I keep having anxiety all day and panic attacks a lot. I've tried breathing exercises, yoga, music... Nothing seems to relax me! I feel like I'm going crazy! I'm not getting enough sleep either. It's such a viscous cycle
I had a b12 shot two days ago, which honesty helped me relax and my heart rate was 75. But it only lasted a day and now I'm back in the 90's and constantly freaking out... I don't know what to do anymore. I don't get the results until the 21st and I'm going insane. I feel like if I have a heart problem I'll just die before the 21st.... Help!
