I started having heart palpatations around 3wks ago and a racing heart rate. Went to docs who told me I have anxiety. I had blood tests and an ECG just to be on the safe side and they both came back ok. I have been to docs 4 times in 3 weeks as I am convinced there is something worse wrong with me and the docs are missing it. I wake up with a racing heart every morning and have the occasional hot sweats, I feel nauseous but am not actually sick. I feel weak and tired, though I tend to get better through the day. I stupidly google every little symptom I get and on the one hand I get anxiety symptoms and on the other it tells me my symptoms could be that of heart disease/heart failure and I can't get this out of my head. I am convinced something bad is going to happen to me & my son will be left motherless & it scares the hell out of me, leaving me a crying wreck at times. I get the odd pain in my chest and arms but nothing major but I just feel weak in my chest. I've had 3x physical exams of my heart/lungs too - all normal. I am on tablets to lower my heart rate but that's it. Can this really just be anxiety when I feel so so ill?
