    Anxiety.Try not to focus on the symptoms.Think- its just anxiety i am ok.If it keeps worrying you however,go to a doc and get another opinion.No one knows but you what you are going through. Can only give an opinion.Hope you can relax and feel better.xx

    I feel the same as you! I had rapid heart rate and it scared the life out of me they say I was anxious although I felt fine but later found I was anaemic and not eating/drinking enough which could contribute! I now suffer anxiety due to my heart worries but have had some tests and they say I'm fine. I've got a baby and it scares me to think I could leave her at any moment.

    I've had a few good weeks thigh and not felt anxious but it's now creeping back up. Just think how many tests you've had done and your fine they don't get it wrong numerous times in a row trust me. Just try and relax, I get palpitations a lot and I got an ectopic beat the other night, it was so hard I thought it would stop but I was so anxious and that's why it did it. As for your chest discomfort it's cause your tense you need to relax have a warm bath try and relax every muscle in your you will feel relief if you try your best to relax. Xx

    There are some relaxation exercises on the side under related information.When you wake up feeling anxious try them.Practice a few times so you will be able to do them automatically.When we sleep and wake up we get a surge of adrenaline to help energy.If you are sensitive at this time in your life it will help your mind balance.It will put you in control.It will send signal to emotional brain that you are in a safe environment

    I have been getting a tight constricted feeling under my arm pit for 3 months now. How long have you been getting it and what does it feel like? I am really starting to get really scared. Does your arm feel weak when you this?

    Sorry you are so distressed.Sounds like health anxiety.Try and calm down and tell yourself its probably just anxiety symptoms and you will be ok.If you need to,see another doctor before yours comes back but i think you are just making yourself sick with worry.xxx
