Hi. I visited the docs about 6 weeks ago as I was getting constant palpatations & my heartbeat was really fast. I had an ECG & blood test, both came back fine & I was told it was anxiety. I've always been someone that worries over the smallest things but its never affected me medically before. I'm on Verapamil to lower my heart rate, but I'm still really worried something bad is going to happen to me. I get pains in my arms, hip area and chest that come and go. My neck and jaw often ache and my chest feels really weak generally. I don't have a shortness of breath as such, but am more tired than normal doing general chores, walking about etc. Does anyone else feel like this with anxiety? The chest weakness is what's bothering me most at the mo & I've developed a tickly cough recently too. All symptoms I have minic those of a heart attack/heart disease & as much as I try & convince myself its only anxiety, I keep wondering if it is, why do I feel so bad & could the docs have missed something. I'm only 35 & previously in good health so why do I fee so bad now? Can anxiety really do all this to me? Would an ECG have picked up all types of heart problems - impending heart attack etc? Feel like I'm going crazy!!!!!!
