Heart problem ??

Hi I'm a seventeen year old girl. Doctors have told me I have a anxiety disorder, but my heart feels like it's beating really fast almost all day until I go to bed. I also have a feeling that my heart is pounding really hard. It's really scary. I haven't been to a heart doctor because every time I call they say I need to be referred by a doctor, and my doctor will not refer me even though I keep telling them something is wrong. I did have one ekg when I was at the hospital, which came back fine, but I still can't help but worry.

I just wanna know if anyone else is having this same problem. It's really scary and I am in constant fear that my heart is gonna stop beating at any moment because of how it's beating. Could it all be in my head ?

i so understand where you are coming from i have called the ambulance and thought i was going to die my heart was beating so fast and i felt like i was going to pass out but the same as you i had a cat scan ecg the works and i was fine i argued with the doctors but it was anxiety attacks i have learned that i cant fight them you just have to realize they happen to us and its ok your not going to die our heads tell us all kinds of stuff and we have to just relax and breath ,breathing is so important inhale threw your nose and exhale threw your mouth breath deep into your stomach and think about somthing happy it takes practice but trust me it will work i will keep you in my prayers but your not alone


Thank you so much for the reply. I'm sorry you are having to go through the same thing. I can't tell you how many time I've been to the er.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one having this. It's so hard to believe it's just our mind.


I can fully understand. I have thought too many times that I was going to either have a heard attack or die from not being able to breathe. Its all in my head. I find it helps to tell yourself, it's just a panic attack your fine it will pass no one ever died from a panic attack. Just relax and think back to a time in your life when you were really happy, vacation amusement park where ever. Imagine that you are there and think back about the scenery people excetra. Breathe in slowly through your nose hold 10 sec and out through your mouth. Trust me it helps. Feel better. Panic and anxiety suck!.
