Hi all. I have dealt with anxiety and OCD for aver 10 years now. My symptoms come and go and I can be normal for many months at a time before another skipe will occur.
My current one is constantly checking my pulse rate and convincing myself that I have an irregular heart beat. I jog daily so this really sux as it interrupts my daily jogging routine and makes it very difficult. Hopefully this one passes like the rest of them have.
Also adding to this is the fact that a couple of time that I have went in for routine blood work they have had me take a potassium pill....as i guess i was a little low. Reading about what effects of low potassium has on the heart has me even more worried. I have also had serious bouts, with heart disease fear, cancer, aids/hiv/ hep c and a million other things. This one sucks really bad as I constantly check my pulse rate and it the least little thing seems wrong with it it sends me reeling!!!!!! Can anyone relate?
