I’m so tired of being obsessed with my heart

I’m so tired of it I want it to stop every day. Yesterday with whatever my heart did put me deeper into a hole. I’m tired of sitting there feeling it beat throughout my body in my back arms mostly. Tired of laying there and feeling it at night time. Like why won’t this stop. Like it doesn’t feel like it’s hard beating. Like idk it freaks me out. I’ve gotten so bad of health anxiety the last two months it just keeps getting worse. I wake up and don’t want to deal with this anymore. And I’m tired of the weird sensations I get inside my chest. Doctors are like there’s nothing wrong with your heart. I’ve obviously convinced myself of the worse happening.

Hi, it’s a horrible feeling, I’ve had all the test going which are all ok, but I still get this feeling of my heart pounding, are you on any medication for this, I do find beta blockers help me, and also deep breathing which calms your heart beat down.

Yes it take a few weeks for new meds to get use to you, you could try the deep breathing though it helps so much with anxiety , if you’re not sure there’s lots on u tube to show you what to do.

I know it’s hard to stay on a new medicine, but it takes time to get to the right level. Once they explained that to me, I calmed down a bit. It did eventually work well. Hang in there!

I have suffered from anxiety for years, mainly down to my husband having some life threatening conditions over the past ten years. I am currently waiting to hear from a doctor (have been for four days now) because I have such an intense feeling of pressure on my chest and just know that my blood pressure must be through the roof. I have a blood pressure monitor, but cannot bring myself to use it as just thinking about it makes me feel really stressed and anxious and I know it would be horrendous as it was last time I felt like this. However a month or so ago I was getting perfect readings. I just don’t know what to do to get it down again and I am certain it is this that is driving my anxiety. Went to A&E earlier in the year and they said it isn’t heart related, but sometimes it does feel like it.
