Hi All, I'm at a loss of what to do.. For about six weeks I've been going to my gp about the fact that I keep getting palpitations and I am short of breath. I get out of breath walking around, or just sitting down.Even when I wake up in bed in the morning, I am breathless and have palpitations. Its on rest or when I'm moving around. GP says chest is clear and put me on gastro type tablets for reflux (i was getting a little bit of a burping problem after food (sorry if this is gross!). But that is not it.. I keep saying, the breathing and palpitations are different to reflux. Sometimes I just get a sharp pain in my chest. That is only occasionally. Was looking forward to my Rheumy appt on 5 march but just got a letter saying the clinic has been cancelled and they'll send me a new appointment - this is the second time that has happened! Any advice would be appreciated. I'm well aware they will tell me this is anxiety and I'm starting not to want to bother the doctors and just believe its just stress or anxiety. I have nothing though to be stressed about. I don't wake up stressed!!!! help? !
