Hi there ~

I understand that your panic attacks are causing you a lot of distress, to the point where you are thinking about when the next one is going to happen. This is called anticipatory anxiety and may lead to precipitating another panic attack. I think that with all the anxiety that you have been having, having variations in your pulse rate is not uncommon. I recommend that you get an electrocardiogram done, and if there is anything suspicious a cardiology referral is in order. I hope you are using relaxation strategies to control your panic attacks. You should see a psychiatrist to have your panic attacks treated with medications and get appropriate therapy referral.

I hope this helped. Take care.

Thanks for your query. I understand your concern with anxiety symptoms. What you are trying to describe is "anticipatory anxiety" that is characteristic of panic disorder. You require a thorough psychiatric evaluation following which anti-anxiety medication as well as psychotherapy can be initiated. Yoga/ meditation/ breathing relaxation exercises are recommended. Hope you found the information useful.
