Unhappy Whats happening to me?

Howdie folks!

Alrighty, so i've suffered with anxiety on and off for around 2 years, bear in mind i'm only 18! All was going well, i had it under control, woudnt let it get the best of me and totally forgot about it. However, after a good night out clubbing on saturday i woke up feeling awfull, as expected. All was okay for around an hour, and out of the blue it just struck me. For no reason, i started worrying about my heart, my heart started pounding and i was extremely restless. I was sick twice in that hour and coudnt relax, thousands of thoughts circling around in my head, the main one been, "am i having a heart attack" after any small pain in my body.
Today seems a little better, but i'm not sure what to do, i keep getting tiny flutters from my heart area and it feels a little tight in the same area. My chest seems fine. When i'm trying to sleep, and not keeping myself busy, i think about it even more and convince myself my heart is giving up. Can anyone else relate to me? What should i do?

Thankyou for any help. Ash

Re: Whats happening to me?


You may be having palpitations. Are you on any meds? Do you go to a psychiatrist?

If your heart problems concern you, you may want to go to a cardiologist and have an EKG. That will detect any heart abnormalities and it is relatively cheap.

If you think this problem is anxiety related, go to a psych, if you already do not. Only meds, therapy, time, and a lifestyle change (no alcohol, eating healthy, exercise, etc) can resolve anxiety disorders.
