Sorry to read you had such a scare , I can only imagine how that might have played with your anxiety but good news that you heart is healthy that is one positive

I think a lot of anxiety sufferers seem to have some kind of digestion issues and what you have described I have heard of others having this problem but usually with the right meds it keeps it in check

Do make sure you eat regular , small meals are best and chewing well as well as taking your time when you are eating and if you can be as relaxed as possible no pressure about when you are eating this all helps :-)

Let us know how you get on when you go back for your check up

Take Care x
