impatience anxiety & high nervousness/pulse
Hi, I'm new here so please bear w/ me.
But when I awake to begin a day I am nervous, start w/ a low pulse in bed (of about 60 but then jump out of bed) & can't help rushing around to get things done only to relax at night & have a resting pulse of about 59 or so when I go back to sleep. Til then I have pulse rates (which for me seem higher as I feel the anxiety/impatience feelings) of around 100 or so, & higher, up til 140 or so when doing heavy cardio exercise. Though these may be normal levels -- I feel (for me) "too worked up or keyed up" thus I worry about doing harm to "my specific body" as maybe my system can't take it?
I'm not sure how normal this is, or how much wear & tear I'm getting by having these adrenalin surges, which make me feel uncomfortable as I read of cardio damage from this anxiety. So does anyone feel this or have thoughts on it pro or con?
I have been assured by a cardiologist that my heart is fine via blood tests, stress ekg, echocardiogram (not stress echo but resting echo w/ doppler). I'm 50 y.o. male in pretty good shape, have bp about 115/74 normally & sometimes lower like 110/65 (unless I workout or stress a bit then higher like 130/78 or so, during workout or stress times but never higher or over 145 systolic even when during very hard exercise, or 80-ish diastolic even during heavy exercise).
I have low cholesterol of about 130 overall, w/ HDL of 65, never smoked, eat very, very heart-healthy strict (& drink organic red wine a few times/week), have low bodyfat & exercise daily using either weights or interval training. Overall, he said my 2 biggest risk factors -- are a fam. hist. (my 75 y.o. dad who has high bp, & he has type 2 diabetes, & who is overweight & smoked/drank til age 65) -- & my anxiety/stress that he'd like me to control for my sanity (he knows I'm type A & realizes this & tries to assure me I'm not doing major damge w/ my oveall lifestyle but I still worry).
I've tried calming via herbs, meditation, deep breathing, etc. but still when I get these pains -- I seem to forget HOW to clamdown & let my worry run away. My mom, before she died, was always a worrier & I think I inherited it from her as I constantly obsess over health or other issues that I can't let go.
Ok, I'm thinking of taking supplements like magnesium for stress, CO Q10 for heart health, Flax for better Omega 3. I eat very well so I'm not sure what diet things to add/minus out?
Thanks for reading this.
