Feel like I'm going to die, heart or breathing stopping

Hi, I'm new to this, but for the past few months I have been dealing with anxiety, but more recently especially since Saturday Oct. 20 I have been feeling like my heart is going to stop, and that my breathing is going to stop, and I'm just going to die. Has anyone else experienced this before, and if so what has helped you?

Hey ive been feeling very similar. I feel like im just gonna pass out and die!! So scary. I never have passed out. You wont either. Your heart isnt just gonna stop. I havent really figured how to get over my feelings of like im gonna die but I am going to see a therapist soon. Stay well! You will not die from anxiety!

Go to a naturopath or herbalist, they helped me so much. My naturopath told me to breathe with my stomach and to do an exercise 3xs a day, in a quiet peaceful spot, while standing breathe in through nose using the stomach and lift the toes while doing it, then breathe out through pursed lips using stomach and relaxing the toes. Do it for 60 breaths. It sure helped me, I was breathing wrong as I had stress and was tense. Then this has a knock on effect. Drink lots of water, make sure you have magnesium every day and omega 3s but a professional will advise you.

You probably have felt like that enough times to know you are not going to die. Please take deep breaths, in through your nose and out slowly through your mouth. I am sorry you feel this way. I know it's scary. Focusing on something pleasant and interesting helps.

YES! I’ve been feeling like this every day! My recent heart monitor showed that everything was normal but I don’t feel normal. Usually my heart rate is faster, and I’m on meds for it, but lately I feel like my heart is pausing or going to stop and I feel like I can’t get a good deep breath. It’s so strange!
