  • See "another" cardiologist? How many have you seen? What were the results?

  • "Whew" again, Johnnie, look at what you wrote. You didn't stop once to end a sentence. Several heart specialists have basically ok'd your heart.....but maybe you don't want to believe your anxiety is just that. Anxiety. Not your heart. Anxiety can be treated.

    But I'm not a doctor, and if you are having pain in your left arm, call your doctor and get to a hospital.

  • yeahh sometimes i do get pain on my arm but not all the time sometimes

  • but should i see another cardiologist or might be just a waste money you think?

  • Johnnie, that decision is yours. I'm not a doctor, I don't know your body.

  • yeahh

  • Yeahhhh. :)

  • Hi there! I just want you to know that I've been in your shoes. My anxiety is health and heart related. I've read lots of your posts and it all comes back to one thing, your scared that your heart is a ticking time bomb. The other thing I've noticed is you constantly ask about whether you should go back to your doctor, but you don't take the doctor's advice or take the medications prescribed to you. Maybe I can help by explaining a few things.

    Beta blockers that are prescribed for you are VERY safe. VERY. They essentially block the effect of adrenaline on your body, so those moments when your heart is beating very fast, you can take one and it will slow down your heart rate within the hour. When I have to take one, my heart rate goes from in the 120s to the 60s and 70s.

    I've also seen you've been prescribed Paxil but won't take it because you're afraid of not being able to drink. This is a personal decision of course, but what's wrong with not drinking if it means living a life free from your anxiety and fear? That being said, I've been on antidepressants off and on for about 16 years. I've taken Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac and currently take Lexapro. I don't drink often, but I do occasionally have a glass of wine at dinner or a beer with friends. The problem is that too much will make you sleepy. Just give it a trial run though. Try it for 2 months and see how it goes. Can't get any worse, right?

  • yeah thank you i would try i been trying to fight this my self and try to control it my self but my body is getting tierd already of always fighting and my body gets in pain back pain leg pain neck pain its really annoying because to relax my heart is by moving my back its like fighting sometimes to make my heart calm down its annoying for real
