Posted , 4 users are following.

Right so today iv had the breathing problem where it felt one breath was so tight it was barely there it's uncomfortable it felt like my breathe had been pulled forcefully ! Then I had breathing feeling it was stopping for ages all day iv had a flipflop heart beat that's coming and going also started having pain in left breast I can even feel a thud every now and again in my throat like where my voice box is I have pain in both sides of my kidneys which started after eating as well and my phone said my heart beat was 166 bpm while sat down resting earlier then later when I felt light it was 56 ! Somebody help please should I go to hospital or do you think it's anxiety my heart races while I stand up or bend down too

    It sounds to me like you have been freaking yourself out all day. And if your panic attacks are anything like mine, you will feel an anxiety attack "hangover" tomorrow. 166 is pretty high, but i think you are just freaking yourself out. My phone sometimes says high and then low. I check it again and figure the very low number was a glitch with the phone. If you can't calm yourself down, maybe a trip to the hospital would make you feel better.

    Hi Steph you have definitely been getting yourself into a pickle today just try and relax and take your mind off it, watch something on tele that you enjoy or even start tidying up (this is what really helps me) you are feeding the anxiety and that's what's making you panic more and giving you all your different symptoms, even go for a shower and chill it will eventually pass!! Take care xx

      Anno the palps to me are the worst when they come from nowhere cause we think the worst about our heart but hold your breath for about 30/60 seconds and they should stop 😃 xx
