Red face 18 years old and heart symptoms! HELP

Hey *wave*

Okay so lately i've been having these strange sensations in my heart. It feels like my heart is just beating really rapidly and like it's fluttering. And then sometimes it feels like my heart is like vibrating and my pulse feels different then my heart does in my chest.....It just feels like my heart is beating in a strange fashion. I am an 18 year old female.

I have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder recently, and these sensations didn't start happening until I developed full blown anxiety. Is it just that? I need some reassurance.

Re: 18 years old and heart symptoms! HELP

you do have all the classic symptoms of anxiety disorder. if you haven't already been checked out by your doctor, i would suggest that you do, especially if heart problems run in your family, you are overweight or have any other conditions. you empower your panic by concentrating too much on what your body is doing. try keeping your mind busy, reading, walking, or even writing journals about experiences in your life. anything that diverts your mind from your bodies senses, will help keep the anxiety at bay. when my panic started i purchased a book by edmund bourne called healing fear. great self help book. will tell you everything about what your feeling, why your feeling it and how to overcome it. hope this helps and let me know how you're coping.

The best reassurance you can get is to go to the doc and get your heart checked out. If you get the all clear you can relax and know it is not a heart condition. Worry multiples every symptom.
