Hello and thank you for reading this: in March of this year I got dizzy out of nowhere and it felt like I lost my breath. My friend said I turned pale when it happened. About 2 weeks afterwards I was laying on my couch and my heart started to beat really fast, and I felt more aware of my heart beat. I felt like I was going to die, panic running through my body, etc. So I drove myself to the hospital and they ran an EKG on me and it came back fine. They take me back and did blood work and they came back too. So they ruled it as an anxiety attack. Ever since then I have felt more aware of my heart beat, and occasionally I feel like my heart makes a harder beat and it freaks me out. Every time I drink coffee or an energy drink I feel very on edge and anxious. And after drinking a caffeine-filled drink, I have chest discomfort and i feel a burp is stuck in my esophagus. When I lay down, it gets a little harder to breathe and the discomfort is there too. So I have to get up and walk around in order for that feeling to go away. I'm a 21 year old male who goes to the gym on a regular basis and I do not smoke and occasionally drink. Please someone give me some advice as to what you think it is and what I should do. I don't want to go to the hospital or doctors again if I'm just overreacting.
