Flutters followed by headache during the day, EKG normal, diagnosed as anxiety. Is the diagnosis right?

Hi. I am a 41 year old very active woman. For the past month, I have been feeling flutters. Very spread out. Except for at night while I am relaxing. That is when it happens mostly. Followed by the flutters, I feel a headrush. Its very scary. Ive been to my doctor. I explained all of my symptoms and I was told that it was anxiety . I have found ways to relax naturally since I dont want to take the prescribed meds. However, it feels like it could be something other than anxiety. My doc performed an EKG and said it was perfect. What should I do? I am really scared :/. Your truly, Scared Total Active Latina

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The symptoms you have are very typically seen in people with anxiety further on EKG will rule out more than half of cardiac illnesses.Hence , I would not consider it to be related to the heart.It could be well ascertained by getting an 2D echo test of the heart which shows even the structural abnormality which an EKG dont.

Do go for natural mind relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation they will help.

Wish you good health.
