Hey guys, so this really scares me all the time... before I go to bed, it's like my mind starts to play tricks. I know I'm tired and I constantly am now because I get no sleep, so last night I fell asleep around 9pm and woke up at 10pm with extream heart palpitations. It's SO scary especially waking up to it. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. This then put me off sleep because I kept thinking I was going to have a heart attack or something in my sleep.

For some reason it only happens at night. The other day I called the emergency help doctors (111) because I had a wierd feeling down the right side of my body, now this time it wasn't my left (where my heart was) but anyway a paramedic came out and tested my heart rate, I could hear my heart beating and thought I heard it jump. The paramedic looked at it and then looked at me then I started panicking thinking I was going to die and I could hear my heart getting faster and faster. It shot up to about 200bmp. It was HORRIBLE. He said there is nothing life threatening that he can see (after he calmed me down of course). But thinks it's due to stress and over thinking.

It's so scary I just constantly think there's something wrong with me from have a terminal illness or a blood clot just something. I don't know what to do anymore or how to control it. It's taking over but all I get from doctors are "your fine" well I know I'm not. My heart just beats so fast and makes me out of control or like I'm going crazy and my anxiety and insomnia are just the worst combination. Don't know what to do anymore :( x
