Heart Issues

Everyday I wake up with palpitations that I can actually hear and feel in my head and heart and I get sharp and tingly pains in my left hand, I think its because I haven't gone outside for 3-4 years from acrophobia I'm really weak and my heart has had no exercise and just adrenaline from constant panic attacks and stress I went to the hospital about 4 months ago and they said I had an irregular heart beat but when I saw the next doctor I had calmed down somewhat, he said it was fine then I saw another doctor there and he said it was anxiety and gave me Cipralex (Escitalopram) 10mg a day and it made me have constant head aches so I had to try get off them and it took me all till now to ween off them and I still have side effects like electro zaps from them, all that aside I have a constant feeling that my bodies accepted that I'm dead soon and theres no way I can fix it as I cannot go outside..

You are in the right place. I know that feeling I have a hard time going outside specially if I go alone. I feel flutters in throat and have had ekg's and an ecg all normal. So yes what you are experiencing sounds like anxiety. Although you can't go out you can try exercising at home. Start light. Stretching a few minutes a day then upgrading your exercises after a while. Go on YouTube it will show you how, look up exercises to relieve fatigue. And maybe if you don't already eat healthier that will make you feel better, I started eating heart healthy foods and it helped, I must admit though anxiety symptoms are strong and not that easy to shake off, but these things should help relieve your fatigue.

I understand that. I too have health anxiety and that is one of my biggest fears
