So I have suffered from anxiety since my first panic attack at 14. I'm now 36. My symptoms are generally the same...racing heart. I had my heart evaluated by a cardiologist about 8 years ago after and episode of SVT post surgery. My heart rate got up to 180 bpm for about an hour. Anyway they did not find anything wrong with my heart at that time. Just thought it might have been both stress and a reaction to whatever they gave me to wake up from the procedure. I've continued to have panic attacks over the years, with my heart rate rising into the 130's typically. It will usually go down once i relax a bit. Recently i have been having more and more panic attacks. I used to only get them when i was freaked out by something, but I've started getting them about 20 minutes to an hour after eating. I can eat very little and my heart rate will rise to about 115-111 while sitting(I check it on my apple watch). I feel hot and anxious and it usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half to subside. Does anyone else experience this with eating? I'm looking at making an appointment next week with my GP, and no doubt a cardiac referal will likely follow, but I just wanted to see if this happened to anybody else. Sorry this is so long, but a lot of info to cover. Thanks!
