My "anxiety" started when I fell off a bike 5 years ago. I didn't hit my chest area but did have a couple of scratches on my legs. Right when I fell I felt my heart begin to race and didn't go back to normal till 10 minutes later. Ever since that day my heart will begin to race for no apparent reason. It doesn't happen every day.. my fear got so bad last year that I was afraid to do anything and everything. I wanted to lock myself in my room and sleep all day just so I dont have to experience it again. I had one again 2 weeks ago, which was a surprise because I haven't had one for 9 months! I finally went to a cardiologist and he told me I might have SVT. Is there a difference with SVT and anxiety symptoms? I dont want to be put on medication that aren't for the right reasons. I avoid as much medication as I can. I've had a 24hr holster monitor and that came out fine. I also had a chest x-ray, blood & urine test, and just got done a thyroid check ( I get results Wednesday)
I'm getting an echocardiogram done this wednesday, so hopefully everything goes well.
My family does not have any heart problems or a bad health history.
What should I do? I want to believe that everything will be fine, and that my heart it fine, I just hate to think that my heart is going to start racing again.
Any help would be appreciated.
