I go away next week and part of my trip will involve a theme park. For the last few weeks, my heart related health anxiety has come back!
My fear that I have an un-diagnosed heart condition is rearing its ugly head again.
I am overweight and I don't get as much exercise as i should - not completely lazy but definite room for improvement! LOL.
I do get palpitations and I suffer with GERD, So sharp/burning pain can be an issue.
Recently, my HR has been lower than usual (according to my Fitbit) and I get out of breath climbing the stairs.
Logical side of brain says - HR is normal, you are just unfit hence out of breath.
Anxiety brain is saying, underlying heart condition - un-diagnosed - imminent death.
In the past I have had countless ECGs, blood tests, a halter monitor and an Echocardiogram. - all fine.
The heart monitor was around 5 years ago and the Echo 3/4 - could much have changed in that time?
I'm worried I'm going to get on a roller coaster or intense ride and it's going to trigger something that will make me very very ill...or worse!!
I feel like this is going to ruin (is ruining) my pre-trip excitement.
I have just done a mini at home workout and feel fine, so surely there's nothing to fear?
