Ok so as you know back in January of this year I had a stress test and a echo test and a 48 hour holtee monitor and all of it was completely normal but I still run to the hospital everyday.. but anyways my heart rate goes into some pretty crazy rhythms all day long like when I’m working I can barley breath if I walk up steps my heart starts beating so hard and so bad that you can see my chest moving and I can’t breath I’m not out of shape or over weight so like why?? Also my heart just has crazy weird palpatations allllllll day long non stop I get thumps all in my chest big flutters it feels like a fish is in my chest..

I’m literally sitting in the er parking lot right now as I’m typing this trying to tell myself this is anxiety and I don’t need to go in there for the 500th time I just want to go home and spend time with my family not sit here all night again.. please help me understand how anxiety can cause my heart rythm to do allllll of this I just don’t get it I honestly feel like those doctors missed something but like damn no doctor has ever found anything wrong with me yet but I’m my heart I know there is something terribly wrong with my heart trust me this isn’t normal..

My heart beat in all kinds of scary rhythms all day long it skips beats it adds in a bunch of extra beats it thumps it goes crazy just going up a few steps it goes crazy if I drink just two beers like I can love a normal life I’m only 30 years old please explain how anxiety can do this ??? How can it make my heart do all those thing??

When stress/anxiety is too high it can cause a lot of issues. Have the medics considered GAD as a possibility? If not, it may be worth discussing that with the medics. If you are on anti anxiety meds already, maybe the dose could be considered.

If something is controlling your life to this extent it should be fully discussed with the medics

So you don’t think it’s a heart problem they have missed ?? Like a heart arrhythmia of some sort?

I can't/don't think anything about the issue because I'm not qualified to diagnose.

It may be worth bringing a screen shot of the message you posted to the medics so that they get the full picture of how you feel and experience things so that they can advise you.

Personally I have more faith in the medics than in the internet. Having said that, I acknowledge that it's sometimes necessary to be persistent in order to get to the bottom of things.

Good luck with your search for answers/treatment.

I promise you to you that you are not alone. I swear, I promise that I feel the same way and It's the worse thing that a person can experience in regards to anxiety. I can't tell you what will help you because I still myself haven't found the right thing. I keep at myself simply forgetting about checking my pulse by removing all of the ways of checking it and when I feel like doing it, I get too lazy to check it. My thumping and flutters in my chest come every day almost and if there were something wrong, it would've done something by now, but the one thing that you have to remember is that none of this has killed you and it wont because it can't. Anxiety makes your adrenaline high almost, it makes you hyper active and scared and paranoid in which screws with your heart rate. I have been to the hospital seven times for the thought that I had heart problems, I've had numerous tests done that would have 100% shown problems and I still think my heart isn't right. I don't think my heart is right either but I've come to terms that if there was something wrong, after all of this time something would've happened. But I know deep down that I've been tested very thoroughly and I know that there is nothing wrong because of those tests. If you EVER need to talk to anyone about this issue, I ask you come to me because I literally know exactly how you feel and I mean that.

Listen, if you are for sure feeling that there is 100% something wrong even when you're resting or not anxious at all, then go to your doctor, explain your worries and request some more tests. Make these tests extensive. I can't diagnose you because I'm not qualified to do such but I know exactly what you're going through right now and I'm slowly getting over it. I'm always here if you need to talk.
