Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You have mentioned that a detailed cardiac evaluation - including ECG, chest X-ray, ECHO and stress test have come back normal and you have had an opinion from your cardiologist also. If this is the case, then you don't have to be worrying about having a cardiac problem or fearing that you would die of a cardiac arrest.

Palpitations can be a manifestation of anxiety. It is important t understand that anxiety can manifest with not only psychological symptoms but with a variety of physical symptoms also. I think that it would be worthwhile having a detailed assessment by a psychiatrist in order to plan how to deal with your symptoms.

Wish you all the best.
