I've been struggling with the chest tightness/all over tension for the past 6 months or so. I've had a full cardio work up about 3 years ago- stress tests, echo, etc. I recently had an EKG (normal). My cardiologist doesn't feel any tests beyond that EKG are necessary at this point based on my previous testing. I'm petrified that I have an underlying heart condition that has just now presented itself and they're not going to catch it because my tests 3 years ago were fine. I don't feel fine! I'm CONSTANTLY tensed. When I drive, it actually takes me a minute to straighten my body up when I get out of the car because I hold it so freaking tight the entire time I'm driving. Can anxiety do all of this? I'm on Propanolol and Lamictal (day 15). My pulse and BP is all over the place, but not alarming. I'm so fatigued, foggy, and just flat out not myself. I feel like a ticking time bomb just waiting for the worst to happen. The only time I don't feel my chest tightness is when I'm asleep. And it takes forever to actually fall asleep because of the scary palpitations/skipped beats. I'm just a mess. Can anyone relate?
