Hiya all I'm new here as I'm an anxiety suffered (massively) I'm really worried about my heart I've had loads of checks including e c g which have always comeback normal other than the few automatic machine generated diagnoses which say possible past heart attack (drs have said nope, normal) I've seen a cardiologist for this chest discomfort too n even he said normal n just anxiety...(he based this on my family history, my normal heart calcium scan and blood lipids)
What's nowxwirrying me is I sent too luv for a meal, fealt fine before hand; had my meal and pint of water with lemon and walked straight home less than 300 yards on a very very small gradient on getting in I fealt my heart beating fast so took my pulse and it was 140!! Slight chest pain after that but no sweating or anything rose other than sheer panic and worry checked pulse one minute later and it had come down too 108 then down too 88 after 2 mins but still feel this slight discomfort in my chest as if I could tess near my breastbone my back hurts ?! Weird right!
All I'm worried about now is my heart and if I have angina or worse a heart attack my Fitbit pulse is currently 74
Some info about me
No family history of heart disease; never had a heart attack, I'm obese but reasonably active, nornal cholesterol and normal blood pressure... normal pulse whilst laid down is mid 70s maybe up into 80s after a meal maybe up too 94 on walking with empty stomach pulse is around 120/130 always have good heart rate recovery though
