Hello. I'm a 64 year old married woman with health anxiety, that arose from several unexpected health scares, including tachycardia from an anti-depressant. I am afraid that it will happen again, even though I am no longer on that medication. I am on a new medication (2 weeks) and feel conflicted because of my experience with the other one. I'd just as soon not be on any medication but this new one helps control anxiety and depression and is supposedly the safest one for anyone with any kind of heart-related episode. I am trying very hard to put the episode behind me but the anxiety keeps it active. I will be seeing a cardiologist later in the month to ensure that everything is as it should be. I am anxious about that too, just in case it isn't. I have stopped drinking coffee altogether and am on a harm-reduction regime with smoking, aiming to quit altogether, and doing relaxation exercises like calm breathing and visualization. I also pray a lot these days. If anyone has other suggestions regarding how to cope with health anxiety, I would appreciate hearing them. Thank you.
