I have been dealing with what seems to be heart palpitations. I've been to the ER and Urgent Care many times. I've seen my Cardiologist and had several tests done. I have went to my Internal Medicine Dr several times and even a couple more Drs to figure out why my heart is beating over 100pm! I am so aware of it....even at night! I am sleep deprived. Been told I have sleep apnea and need a cpap machine! Every doctor I've seen has told me that I suffer from anxiety! I have been prescribed Buspar, Zoloft and Kolonopin by my internal medicine Dr. I'm Just afraid to take the medication concerned about side effects. I would try one med for a couple of days and be afraid to take it and stop...no even trying to give it a real chance to work! I have been dealing with this vicious cycle since August of this year! Seems like my heart is thumping all of the time! My cardiologist says there is nothing wrong with my heart. I've been having tingling and pins and needle over my body...my feet have ber cold, I have been dizzy...experincing numbness in my right leg and foot. Could my anxiety be the true culprit in all of this?? Should I be afraid to try meds for it? I fear becoming hooked...smh! I just want normalcy again. My doctor said my heart is beating at a regular rhythm. I am seeking counseling with a liscenced therapist. I just don't want to be on meds and walk around out of my mind. I want to feel aware and be happy again. Please help and thank you for any advice and tips. I loss my job in October and going through lots of stress at home, financial and some marital and I am a Mom. Could my stress from everything be making my heart feel this way? God bless you for any response that can help me. Thanks so much.
