High heart rate, should I worry

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, I think i have a higher than normal heart rate than normal anyway. But this evening I had an argument with my partner and when he left I could feel my chest and heart rate instantly. I have had this before and put it down to anxiety type panic attack. But this feels a Bit different. My left arm and have all like pins and needles/ tingly and it's just not slowing down. I don't feel particularly ill. Just bit uncomftable and short breath a bit. I really appreciate any advice. Thank you. X

    Hi Amber . My advice to you is to get to an  hospital  emergency room . Hon  don't mess around it could be a matter of life and death . women often have different  signs of  heart issues than men . Please go ,don't wait .

    Amber there is a TV message that says women would rather die than get their heart checked out ,and so that what they do . Have you seen this? Don't be one of these women . I wish you the best . Also arguments can be resolved and if not ,they are not worth it . Your health comes first . Be good to you first girl .

    You are absolutely right, it most definitely sounds like anxiety induced changes.

    Adrenaline is a powerful hormone and you can get pins and needles/tingling feeling associated with anxiety as well.  It can take quite a while to dissipate, everyone is

    different.  While little bits of stress probably wouldn't have that big an impact on someone, you certainly wouldn't want a daily dose of it.
