I would be exactly the same,
Like I always say to people its always good to have a check up every now and again.
Heart rate can go up and down for lots of different reason, and we're all different.
For your peace of mind make an appointment to see your gp.
And anxiety of course can affect your pulse rate
The anxiety symptoms is what gets to me like now my mouth feels weird and eyes feel tired. I don’t like taking medication but I go to a therapist every week and try breathing techniques & mediation apps . The medication I have make me feel worse
I’ve been on lorezapam and hydroxyzine hcl. I’m seeing a psychologist weekly. It was helping a lot controlled my anxiety for one whole month. They are just concerned with my heart rate when I get my vitals done . It’s at 116 but that’s because I get very nervous. They gave me beta blockers but they drop my blood pressure way to low and I feel crazy
Yeh I've had doctors panicking over my pulse rate but once they have a decent look at my notes it would be unusual my resting pulse rate was under 80
Everything else is fine,
If I was at the doctors and my pulse was say 70 I would be like ummm...thats weird
Just try to remind yourself that anxiety symptoms can cause all kinds of body reactions and a fast pulse is 'normal' with anxiety, its one of the most common symptoms. I also get this, and dry mouth and definitely feel tired (right now!). Of course you should have the doctor check you over, but you said you've done this.
I think many of us understand about the checking. I recently had a blood sugar monitor on (the scan ones), because I thought there was an issue with my sugar dropping too low. It checked it constantly, and the anxiety got worse until I realize the stupid monitor wasn't that accurate. Then things got crazy from there, but even once you know, it doesn't stop the anxiety.
turning it off is just to try to stop your focus, if it helps try turning it off for certain times of day when you may feel safer and go from there. Your heart is actually a fairly robust organ and a fast pulse does not usually cause any further health problems unless its a result of some other medical condition, but if the doctor gave you a clean bill of health, you must try to believe in him/her and trust its just anxiety.
Try keeping some mints or other sweets to suck.
This may help produce saliva and help keep your mouth moist.
I always keep a bottle of water with me.
It’s by no means a miracle cure but they are both my
