i am on meds and just started so im hoping they will work. i wake up every morning with racing heart rate. its terrifying. i have had chest pains for 2 years now. i have been to the E.R. many times they always say i am fine. i have hypertension that i take meds for as well. i have constant anxiety that i take xanax for and that doesnt even stop it, it just makes it more tolerable. all my ekg, blood tests, xrays, and a echo cardiogram came back normal. my thyroid is normal. im driving myself insane with fear and losing my job over this. i have been having panic attacks for the last two weeks and im terrified waitng for the next one. everyone says just try not to think about it which sounds easy, but when its happening i cant just not think about the fact that i can feel my heart going crazy. i dont hyperventilate so breathing techniques dont help me. i am in constant anxiety so i never get a break its like im stuck on the verge of a full blown panic attack at all times wether im just watching tv or going to the grocery store. im losing control of my life.
