I was really really hoping someone could help me understand what's happening? I am a 20 year old female and I have spent the last two nights unable to sleep because of my heart. The beat feels irregular, starting out seemingly racing, slowing if I focus on my breathing but then pounding really hard, and if I stress out too much it builds to something that feels like an awful electric shock, radiating from my chest around my whole body. It is fine in the day or when I am focused on other things, but when I try and go to sleep it is unbearable particularly when I start to get anxious about it.
I had the same thing around the same time last year (it might be to do with the big end of uni celebration weekend??) and it got slowly better over a week or two and then stopped, but a less bad version is sometimes brought on after a big night.
I've spent these nights obsessively searching google for anything that sounds similar, and the closest thing I've found is LAF, although no one seems to mention the electric shock type thing??
Can anyone please help me with any information or advice?? I'm really really scared reading about strokes and blood clots and i don't know when I'll next get to sleep and it's absolutely impossible to get into my doctors
