Question: Hello Doctor. I am looking for ways to help reduce anxiety that has suddenly over come me. I have been through a lot of late and most recently went into vasovagal shock when a blood draining procedure was incorrectly done on me. I wqs diagnosed with an iron overload and recommended that i remove one pint every 8 weeks. However at the first session i was in the seated position and the blood was drained at a very fast rate which i could bot handle. Since then i have had trouble with anxiety and sometimes have little panic attacks. I had a warm sensation over my left chest yesterday and immediately thought i was having a heart attack and went to the clinic to see the doctors. Even thiugh the specialist cardiologist siad i have the heart of a 16 year old at my last examination which was after the vasovagal shock. Pls sir, how can i overcome this terrible feeling that i keep having, my left eye even started twiching and when i look at my hands they are not steady at times. I have problems with my acidity levels and have seen an gastroentologist who conducted a g scope and i was treated for h pylori prior to the incident of the vasovagal shock, so im not surr if this shock has contributed to elevated acid levels because of additional factors like stress and anxiety. I am a very aftive person and have been out of the gym and havnt been for my regular runs in over 9 weeks. The sensation over my chest came thiis week after i had returned to the gym and done some slight workouts to try and get back into my normal routine. Please advise if its still to early for me to exercise or the acidity could be a contributing factor to the sensation in my chest. I know my heart is in good health but the sensation is what is crameating added worry. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely. XXXXXX

Brief Answer:
You may have generalized anxiety disorder

Detailed Answer:
HI
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

I think, you have generalized anxiety disorder with panic disorder and that why, you have anxiety symptoms throughout the day. In your case, gastric symptoms could be due to anxiety symptoms. In anxiety disorder, gastric symptoms like increase acidity, chest pain etc increase. I think, you need few antidepressant like paroxetine with low dose benzodiazepine. That would help you to come out of the anxiety symptoms. You can also try some relaxation exercise. There is nothing harm in going to gym or on regular exercise. Better to consult a psychiatrist for proper management and diagnosis.

In case, you need further help, you can ask.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
