  • Do you take any medicine for your anxiety or go to counseling? I ask this because I see you post on here very often with the same problems time and time again. You got the A ok from a cardiologist a few months back, and usually nothing changes in a few months time unless you're having a heart attack. Just curious if you take medicine or go to counseling to try to help all your worrisome thoughts and symptoms.

  • yeah i have beta blockers and i have anxiety pills but dont take them because they only really work in a bout 3 to 4 weeks its called paxils and yesh but the thing is my heart goes really fast like arrythmia its like something that really strong

  • Paxil is an EXCELLENT drug used for anxiety, worrisome, and nerves. You should probably start taking them and stay on them (as long as your doctor prescribed them to you). Also look into some counseling, maybe someone who specializes in CBT. I really think those things would help you tremendously.

  • yeah but did you ever got those really fast heart rates but mostly 24/7 a day or very nervous about anything or going in some where or out with some friends and feel the nervous feeling in the stomach thats how i get and my heart goes super fast that i think im going to past out then it calms down or goes away for a bit

  • I never had them 24/7 no. But they would come and go throughout the day. I could be working, or I could be sitting down watching tv. I really think if you take the medicine you're prescribed and get into 1 on 1 counseling a lot of these problems will get better for you. No one here is a professional that I'm aware of and we can only give advice and try to point you in the right direction. At the end of the day you have to make the decision to take the medicine and get counseling to try to better yourself. What you're going through is no way for a 20 year old to live. I've been there before when I was 18-19 so I know exactly what it's like. But I finally got tired of feeling crappy day in and day out and I got professional help for myself.

  • Yeah soo i should take the beta blockers ? or the paxil

  • I don't know much about beta blockers personally. But the Paxil is for your anxiety, and I think once you get your anxiety under control a lot of your symptoms will ease up or disappear all together. The more anxious and fearful you are the more symptoms you'll have and feel.

  • Yeah you right the beta blockers calms down your aderline and heart rate calms down make you feel more relax but it also drop you blood pressure low thats why sometimes i probably feel dizzy

  • Hi I agree sometimes you need to get professional help when the anxiety gets out of control and the symptoms are interfering with your life 24/7 .medication also maybe needed as and when required to help get the anxiety under we all know when anxiety hits 100% we worry constantly and can think straight and over think our symptoms fast heartbeat,aches and pains,headaches ,irritable bowel syndrome, to name just a few.I have had them all over the years and I seeked help and have CBT.

  • Whew! Take a deep breath! Sounds like you are really wound up and that feeds anxiety which feeds you being wound up, etc.

    Maybe talking with you general practitioner about this will help, or you could get a good referral from the doctor for a therapist.

    No one is going to think you're crazy for seeking that sort of assistance.

    Just remember to breathe, ok?

  • yeahh my heart just worries me alot because its going super fast like really bad arrythmia

  • Well, maybe you can look at the situation in a different way. Maybe you are worrying yourself and that causes anxiety, and panic, and that could cause your heart to race.

    Now start taking a few deep breaths, ok? And consider getting professional help to stop this vicious cycle.....know you are having a very difficult time, and you deserve to live better than this. :)

  • yeah because im getting worried its a 24/7 thing i nitice when im out or go to the mall or something i dont feel it like that im calm because not constaly thinking about it or touching my heart to see if its going fast but when i do touch it speeds up a little but when im home i get alot symthoms and my heart racing for anything just by getting up from bed or from sitting down it goes really fast then calms down

  • And please consider taking your meds as they are prescribed. If you trust the doctor that rx them for you, and the doctor knows about your ER visits and heart tests, you don't really do not give a good reason not to take them even it takes a few days to help you. Follow me?

  • yeah

  • Good.

  • Hey johnnie you should really take your pills I'm on Paxil right now it works man give it the time to kick in and take routinely as prescribed don't miss a day you can mess it up

  • but the thing is the side effects in the begining thats the thing and i could stop taking them if i want after i feel good or ?

  • There's just as many side effects taking Paxil as there is taking Tylenol. Most people will take Paxil or similar drugs for years and then ween off them. If you stop taking them right when you start feeling better, you're going to more than likely feel worse again quickly Bc you don't have the medicine in you.

  • soo thats the thing how would i would stop dont always wanna take them because some days will like to go to a bar or something

  • Your not technically supposed to drink with any medication. But unless you're an alcoholic it probably doesn't matter that much honestly. TONS of people drink daily and take medicine as well.

  • yeah no i just drink once in a blue not a everyday thing but i really mostly dont drink alot because i think about my heart going fast or something happening while im at a bar.

  • I have stopped drinking caffeine years ago and drink as that gave me palpitations I take one beta blocker a day for my heart and since cutting out decaff drinks I'm so much better not very often I get them know.also cut out fizzy drinks that contain caffeine. Hope this helps you .

  • yeah i have beta blockers aswell i take them sometimes not a everyday thing and i do get the sythoms alot mostly my heart beating hard or super fast at time and my head feeling wierd another thing is when i go up some stairs its like i get shoetness of breath and my heart beats fast and i cant relax my body i start feeling tense like my back i start to move in order to try to calm down my heart rate it just annoying this is a everyday thing

  • Hey Johnny. Lots of people care about you. How about returning the love and take their advice. Just think.....if you had taken the medication all those months ago you would be feeling better. I know i have written many times on your posts and you ignore ignore ignore. You aren't the one with the medical degree so stop trying to decide which medication to take etc. Listen to your doctor. And listen to all these wise helpful caring people on this forum. We have ALL "been there" so how about take a deep breath, relax and read what people are trying to tell you.

  • Yeah i know the thing is i wouldnt want to keep taking those meds right now i have beta blocker that i take only sometimes when i feel that my heart is really bad and fast and the paxil i took one day but i woke up wordt wanting to throw up and never took it again and i have vitamins the thing is i wouldnt wanna take all those pills in all one day you know
