Heart Palpitations when laying flat on back

Does anyone experience heart palpitations when laying flat on back? Does anyone have any advice for medication to cure severe anxiety and constant worry. Please help I just want my normal life back.

Have you been to the doctors about how you're feeling?

Yes, since the cardiologist said everything was normal I was given anti depressants. But I haven't taken them. Well I did try the Paxil but it made my chest burn so I stopped.

Hi. The best person to advise you on any kind of medication is your doctor, who will know your medical history. Different types of medication work for different people - there is no one size fits all. It may be that you dont even need medication - maybe therapy is an option instead. Or perhaps a combination of the two. Whatever way, it is your doctor who will know what will be best for you.

Kdavids right, I'm trying my 2nd medication now to see if that helps. May be worth while going back to ur docs. When you lay on your back at you thinking that your going to get palpitations?

Sometimes, I just think my body is pushing to much adrenaline,cortisol and norepinephrine.

Have you tried cbt? I had a telephone appointment yesterday and just having that has reduced my anxiety an awful lot knowing that I'm getting help very soon! I also brought a book called dare and I've just started it up until now I feel absolutely amazing!! I did have a wobble earlier tho but I came back though it :)! X

I think the paxil is calming me, I went to church tonight (something I never do) my 7 yr old daughter goes to a church/daycare after school and I attended that tonight while she went off with other children. I was able to think and pray that god will take my problems. I also went for a 30 minute walk to clear my mind. Lifestyle changes along with paxil will work. I have had anxiety and panic attack for about 10 years and it has only manifested. Hopefully I get better soon.
