Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
Don't worry dear. It appears that everything is normal on the Holter which is a 24/7 EKG monitoring. This indicates there isn't anything organically wrong with your heart. It's just that in an anxiety attack the nervous system acts up and gets the heart all haywire including your emotions. This is caused by hormone surge. Generalised anxiety could be caused by medical disorders. You may want to rule out certain medical conditions like Hyperthyroidism, Phaechromocytoma. Please discuss these possiblities with your Physician. Don't worry. Try to relax. You could meet with a Psychiatrist to help teach you ways to relax through an attack and also help prevent it.
