so after a few good weeks of minimal anxiety feelings and only a few palpitations they have come back with vengeance today , it always seems to be worse when I'm on my own and trying to chill or rest , I had a can of Diet Coke and for the last hour been suffering really bad missed heart beats and palpitations - I can feel the missed beats when I check my pulse and that makes me more anxious 😩, got the doctors after the weekend but not sure if this is all anxiety or something cardiac , I have had health anxiety for 5 years but lately it is general anxiety I feel too in certain social situations or even just when I'm sat overthinking, I hate it , any one else have the skipped beats ? Scared that when I go to go it will be really abnormal especially as I have developed a slight phobia of the doctors surgery now and that will make my heart rate increase/ skip any way , arrrgh hate anxiety , not on meds yet but wonder if they may help , thanks
