Hi I have been lurking on here a few days now and find it v reassuring to know that others have had the same symptoms as me and it is all caused by anxiety.
BUT (there is always a but)... since I started trying to believe that it is all in my head, or at least created by my head, I have been feeling calmer but my heart pattern has changed again.
I was getting big missed beats, very scary, and then long periods of what I guess are palpitations, ie heart seeming to judder instead of beating clearly. My counsellor says this is my body rebalancing.
But since I started trying to believe this and calm down, my heart is just constant flutter flutter. I mean when I had the heart monitor last week, I was getting it every hour or so. But now it is all the time?
Can it be that I am getting better and this is my heart/nervous systems balancing out... ie another phase as my body tries to recover from all my stress?
Has anyone else experienced this? I just feel as if I have had a giant espresso... *all the time.* My concentration at work is completely shot, although I can concentrate fine on the things I love ie my hobby of writing. (PS I haven;t had caffeine for about 5 months so I don't think it's that!)
Thanks for any ideas or support.
