Im not sure if anyone has had an issue like this. I am 20 years old and have had anxiety a couple of years now. I have a pretty bad phobia of my heart beat not beating right, or even stopping. I suffer from heart papltations, I have gone to the doctor and a cardiologist and all is supposedly fine except I have extra heart beats. Some of my family does too but aren't so conscious about it. I always pay attention to my heart beat and get scared something is wrong, and then start having trouble breathing and always jump to checking my pulse. It does not completely interfere with my day to day things, but some days it can be bad and I am just growing tired of it. Is there anything I should do? I never considered therapy but maybe it could be an option. Thanks for any advice its greatly appreciated and is nice to know some people suffer from similar things even if its not a fear of the heart.
