I'm always monitoring my breathing and heart rate. I fear a heart attack with everything I have and it's consumed me these past two years. I was wondering if anyone else regularly checks their pulse. I feel silly in public but if I don't I will start having a panic attack and think my throat is closing. I've had anxiety my entire life but this has just recently developed, within the last two years id say. I've had an EKG and it was normal, my blood pressure is alway good and my heart rate is usually 70-71 bpm. And yet I still have this fear and it's even scarier to think this is only me..
