I have been experiencing health anxiety/anxiety attacks almost constantly for about 4mos. This all started with a sudden attack where I felt faint, tachycardia and sudden increase in BP. Since then I have had extreme dizziness, almost constant bounding heart, cloudy, abd pain and on. I've had cardiac testing including stress test, echo, and I wore a heart monitor for 30 days. I've had Multiple EKGs and also had an MRI. All of these tests have come back normal. So for weeks ive just been living with these symptoms with the knowledge that it is anxiety. At times these symptoms have fely debilitating. I have also experienced extreme GERD and difficulty swallowing which has gotten better since rountinely taking Prilosec. The GI MD wants me to have a barium swallow done but I just cant see having yet one more test that will come back normal. I have slowly been feeling better and my dizziness/cloudy feeling is starting to subside a bit. I do continue to have a bounding heart that lasts for maybe minutes or hours or an entire day. A new symptom that I have been having along with the bounding heart are palpitations or flutter feeling that causes me to have to catch my breath. This sometimes happens multiple times in a day and even multiple times an hour. This is very scary and it happens when I am completely fine, watching television, cooking, etc. Does anyone else experience this related to anxiety?
