Go to the doctors. He's the only one that can answer those questions by performing lab work and other test. And maybe like this you can also get reassurance.

Definitely see your doctor, don't worry about him/her thinking you're crazy, we're all crazy, doctors are paid good money to deal with crazy people☺ You need a medical explanation for this,

There could be something going on but your anxiety might magnify it. Could be something simple but as you think about it, your anxiety feeds into it... I would definitely talk to a doctor. That is what they are for!

the thing is that i dont really dont know how to explain it very well like its a crazy feeling

The only thing you can do is explain it to the best of your ability. I have a problem with my vision that I cannot explain. Its almost like a small circle of my vision magnifies for a couple seconds. Sounds crazy and doesn't make sense but I wrnt to a neurologist and I guess it is part of a migraine disorder. It only took a few visits and me just explaining every little thing the best I can. Even if your doctor says that it is just anxiety, it wont hurt to ask..

Don't worry about what you think they will say. You have real symptoms. They are not there to judge they are there to diagnose. If it is anxiety, then great! They will treat you either way. (I work in healthcare. Trust me, they would rather you come in.

I had the same issue. No one knew. Went to naturopath and told her I get weird sensation in my chest then heart goes crazy. She said it's my vagus nerve from unhappy stomach. She has changed my diet and episodes are reducing

Ohh i dont know whats wrong with me they just saying its anxiety disorder but i havent been to the ER for 4 or 5 months so i dont know about now but its getting a bit annoying everyday daily

Well I've tried several anti depressants and they caused ectopic beats so I was at the end when I went to natural therapy. Just letting you know sometimes someone you think can't help...helps the most. Best of luck

Johnnie, like others are saying your doctor can answer these questions and help figure out what to do. Anxiety or physical you'll get a definite answer that Will provide piece of mind. Sure, our caring words will help but nothing will be certain till you speak will your doctor. I had an a irregular heartbeat that gave me afib. The afib gave me anxiety because i want able to control it. Then i had blood pressure issues. With medication i have my pulse under control and the anxiety is more manageable. But im glad i went to the doctor rather than try and self diagnose a crazy issue like that. The piece of mind will be a starting point to get the right tools ready..

The carotid artery in you neck is probably clogged with plaque. That happened with me. There is a sensor in there which regulates the heart rate. My doctor told me to take at least 9 capsules per day of fish oil to melt off the plaque. BTW, I find that the best fish oil is Norwegian cod liver oil and I use it every day for arthritis.

what is that is that really bad ? or something ? and i have natrual bounty b-12 is that good or i have to get fish oil?

Reply

Ask your doctor to do an ultrasound test on the carotid artery to check for plaque. If he says it's got plaque, start with the fish oil capsules or my favorite Norwegian cod liver oil.

alright but is it a bad thing ? but you understand what im saying about the neck stuff ?

Reply

IT is serious. You must fix it or you could pass out or worse. When it happened to me my doctor immediately ordered a sonogram and prescribed fish oils. Fish oils are necessary in everybody's diet anyway.

Do you have a history of rapid heart beat? I do and it's called tachycardia. However, if you don't, then it may be simply plaque in your carotid artery. Please have that checked first thing.
