    I'm also on propanolol 40mg 3 times a day for a fast heart rate and heart flutters, I've had 3 ecgs but picked nothing up, you mentioned there you have a strong heart beat, same here I will be Layed in bed and I can literally feel the bed shake with my heart beat.

    Before I had my panic attacks I wasn't even aware of my heart beat where as Now I am very aware of it and my breathing as I have shortness of breath everyday to😞

    But you mentioned you had a 24 hour ECG if it had picked nothing serious up the chances are in sure it's almost like anxiety in still getting my head round that anxiety can cause all these weird Symtoms without there been a physical illness in the background instead my therapist tells me to stop looking for answers and accept it as it is but I can't.

      thank u so much for listening to me .. i have had few ECGs but they were done in absence of these symptoms.. ALL NORMAL. my heart beat is so strong that i can feel myself shaking... its so annoying n scary.. m feeling like screaming😞 also i get chest pains for seconds that scares the hell out of me.

      i am taking 40 mg propanalol twice a day.. i just can't sleep.. i really need some assurance. i cudnt find any therapist. i feel like i am stuck in a tunnel with no opening. even right now while typing i am shaking with my heart beat.. do u think its just anxiety ?? i am having hard time to believe that anxiety can cause this. i had heart echo 3 times with normal structure

      No problem you will find a few people on here with the same expieriences.

      I often question the "what ifs" the "buts" "what if they have missed something".

      I get the chest pains aswell for a couple of seconds but I think if there was a thing really wrong with our hearts the ecgs would of picked something up even if we wernt having the episodes while it was getting done im told it's a sensitive piece of kit. My mind has also questioned that "but wernt feeling something when the test was getting done" Our mind are powerful things.

      I havnt had a heart echo done I'm going to ask for one though just to make sure and for reassurance but even then I think my mind won't believe it to be honest it's a vicious circle we are in once your trapped in it.

      Yes I believe it can cause a thumping heart sensation I believe it can cause a lot of Symtoms. But in still trying to get my head round it all that anxiety can be so physical it's just bewildering if you ask me.
