Racing heart.... it’s scary idk what to do...

Posted , 5 users are following.


So I’ve always suffered from physical anxiety symptoms and th scariest one has to be the racing heart. Always feels like it’s beating fast or hard and I can clearly feel it... usually I’ll have a symptom or two that last days and even weeks and for the past almost five days , it has been this ... idk if it’s because I wake up thinking about it but it occurs almost all throughout the day even if I’m not feeling that anxious . I notice that it stays after a bad panic attack. I went to the clinic a week ago and I have the white coat syndrome so my bp skyrockets whenever I go and since then my head has been like that. I’ve had ekgs before and I’m told I’m healthy but why does this happen ?! I went shopping yesterday and right away my heart started pounding and it was so uclfmrotable and scary.

    I' this again, do you lose your appetite to eat as well? I can not eat at all. See I went through all this over 2 years ago, went on sertraline 50mg and got well came off the meds 3 months ago, was doing really fine, started partying too hard and drinking and I think I've ruined my self a gun, I'm so angry with my self it's awful. Should I go back to dr or just see how it goes.

    I having had a good sleep for 3 days so maybe I need that?

    What is opinions plz xxx

    I had these symptoms on a regular basis but I started sertraline 50mg about 8 weeks back and it has helped me greatly. I’m not 100% yet but well on my way. Point is have to considered an anti anxiety medicine? I think it may help you with your problems! Good luck

      Typo, it was supposed to say have you considered not have to considered. I wish there was an edit feature on this site. Lol

    Hey sweetheart, you are anxious. Do you mean when the beating heart comes on, you're not necessarily worried about anything? Sometimes it just a state of mind caused by prolonged or suppressed stress. It can happen for a reason equally so for no particular reason. I stopped trying to analyse that years ago. You had a panic attack when you were about to go shopping because you were worried that you would have a panic attack whilst you were out. Subconsciously you are working yourself up and these thoughts and the fear you hold onto is the trigger. If it is becoming too much, sounds as though it is. See the doctor honey. The sooner you get it sorted, the better. I really do hope you feel better soon. Donna xxx
