I have episodes of palpitations throughout the day. I suffer from health and general anxiety.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I feel a little agitated for a second and my heart starts racing. It lasts 2-3 minutes but goes away with deep breathing. The last few days they have happened 3 to 4 times per day but sometimes slow down even after a minute of breathing. Can anxiety do this? I've had all sorts of tests done on my heart by a cardiologist and everything came back normal. He never caught an episode like this but says there is no heart disease or blockages. Just wondering if anxiety can make your heart start racing out of nowhere like this for a minute a few times a day. Usually happens to me when I get home at night.
