PLEASE understand that I cannot possibly Dx your problem. I am not a doctor and cannot know your problem for sure. Try to stay calm and relax, so as not to exacerbate whatever IS going on with you.
I read these symptoms long ago on the Thryoid Board, from someone called Mary, who was hyperthyroid, and I think the related heart problem has a name but I don't remember it
Mary or MaryLynn was warning people, as some in her family had had heart attacks from this. DON"T get scared, just check this out, OK?
I am hypothyroid, (low), just the opposite as her, and still had heart palpitations and anxiety attack like symptoms, heart racing, etc.
You can go on the about.com/thyroid board and post questions for the name for the problem and even post a question to Mary Shoman who has done extensive research on the subject. She has a lot of archived articles too, and a message board.
Also do an internet search on hyperthyroidism and the heart relationship.
Please let me know how you are and what you find out.
See me on the Thyroid Board, too. I post there as Tree Frog.
