heart pounding

Not a good writer so please have patience.I am 33 years old and for the past 1 1/2 years i have been expierincing hard heart pounding that is constant.I also have sharp pains in all over my body.You can actually see the heart beat in my neck and especially my left wrist.I have been to 2 cariologist and both tell me nothing is wrong.I have had ekgs,holter test, and stress test on ttreadmill.When i lay down i can feel heart beat throughout my whole body.I am very concerned and is affecting my way of living.I have been told by a couple of doctord that is anxiety but i dont believe it is.I have tried the medicine they have given me and does not change the way i feel.If any one is having similar symptoms please respond back to me. Just make sure i explained right I do not have a fast heart rate it is just a constant hard pounding.Thank you to anyone who may have similar problems or suggestions.

Re: heart pounding

yea man I just recently made a new thread last night saying how I was experiencing similar problems that you have It's not so bad as it was yesterday I mean yesterday it was pounding like an overworked steam machine lol I'm still extremely concerned I already have went to get an Ekg and an chest x-ray and both came out negative but I'm still getting random chest pains and also I get around different parts of my body which are annoying as hell because it just makes me think that something is wrong with my nerves endings or something.
But yea dude your not the only one in that boat of anxiety.

Question Re: heart pounding

Hi B Shake,

I know this is sort of an old post, but I am experiencing the exact same symptoms that you posted about. I have had constant heart pounding for a week now. My Cardiologist suggested that I go to the ER, and they didn't find anything on the EKG and Chest X Ray.

It is especially bad after I go up or down the steps, and it is accompanied by what feels like shortness of breath, even though my pulse ox was 94% in the ER.

Are you still having these symptoms? Did you find out what is causing it?

Re: heart pounding

I have the heart pounding too! I can see my pulse in my neck and wrist most of the time. It pounds so hard it makes my shirt move. I also get a lot of pressure in my head and my hair moves to my heart beat. Docs keep telling me I'm fine. I just wish I had an answer for this!

Re: heart pounding

I'm in the same boat. Hard heartbeat, visible pulsations in stomach, wrists, hand and particularly the neck. My neck THROBS right down to the collarbones.

Tests and 6 doctors say I'm fine. Anxiety does strange things. (I even get those little pains...)

Re: heart pounding

My heart is pounding too even as I type!! I'm not anxious or anything just sitting here relaxing. I too can see my pulse in my neck and I feel my heart beating in my chest. I also have high blood pressure and pulsatile tinnitus(hear heart beating in ears).
