I'm new to this forum and I don't know if I'm posting to the proper place, but hopefully someone can help. In May, I started having problems breathing. I could best describe it as air hunger. I would try really hard to take a deep breath. Much harder than normal. Also, I've noticed my heart "skipping" a beat every now and then. This has gone on all summer long, and never fully goes away. Tonight, I noticed my heart was beating really hard all day, and now I can't sleep. I'm sure part of it is anxiety about it, but I know something's not right somewhere. I just checked my pulse and it was a little over 80/min. I think that's kind of high,, but again, could be anxiety. Also, I visited a doctor and had an EKG and CT scan on my chest, along with all standard tests (pulse check, blood pressure, etc) and everything turned out fine. But again, I KNOW something is wrong. Any ideas on what I should do or what it could be? Please help. It scares me and I desperately want to breathe normal again. Oh, I'm 25 and overweight, which I'm sure has something to do with it, although I do run around and play a lot.
