Please help

I orginally postes this in the anxiety board but no one wants to reply and im still freaking out.
I noticed about 7 months ago my heart would skip a beat. It would do it from time to time and really freak me out. I was checking my pulse and found this out which I just knew I was about to die but didnt. Now over the past week it has gotten so bad that Im scared to get out of my chair and walk around. I do have horrible anxiety that comes and goes and it it really bad when its that time of the month. Im freaking out that this is some sort of†heart†problem†but my husband keeps telling me its only my anxiety. Last year I did have several ekgs and tons of blood work with everything coming back normal. Please someone tell me this is only anxiety and not my heart about to quit on me†

Re: Please help


Sorry that you didn't get any replies before...I have read your message and concidered your concerns. I too have had skipped heart beats....for many years...but soon learned that my anxiety was causing it...When something goes wrong with our hearts ( no matter how trivial) we begin to realise that we are NOT invincable and practicly anything could go wrong! But in reality if you thought 7 months ago...." that's heart is going to would have by now...and you wouldn't be here to tell the tale!!".....I suggest that you learn to relax....take relaxation classes...and your problems will rectify very quickly. I hope this help it is no fun going through such anxiety..Best of British....Tracy...( survivor of a heart attack + 2 stents ) xxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks for the reply. its just really hard to tell myself its nothing when it skips over and over again. i probably have 30 or more skips a day. if im sitting its not as bad as when im standing or walking. i hope this is nothing more than anxiety.

Re: Please help

believe me, you are not alone. if you are truly worried go and see your doctor again and demand more tests, maybe go and see an arrhythmia specialist. be very forceful.
