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

I think, you have anxiety disorder. At age of 28 years, chances of cardiac ailment is less and psychological anxiety is more. May be due to your work, you are tense and that could be the leading factor to cause anxiety in your case. If your are not getting sufficient relief with antidepressant like rexipra (escitalopram), then you can try another antidepressant like paroxetine with relaxation exercise. That would help you to control underline anxiety and make you relax. Better to consult a psychiatrist for proper treatment. If you have any doubt about cardiac illness, you can consult a cardiologist for ECHO or ECG.

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

I had done ECG 4-5 times and every time it was normal. I am not able to understand why this problem is happening. Doctor whom I have consulted say that it is a phsychomatic disorder, but I dont understand that every one take a bit of tension. One cant stop thinking and go totally blank. I dont drink or smoke but still facing this from last 3 months. Have consulted more than 10 doctors but not able to cure.

Brief Answer:
Consult a psychiatrist

Detailed Answer:
Hi

There are lot of reasons behind anxiety disorder like genetic predisposition, poor coping skills, personality traits, social factor or family factor etc. Due to all these reasons, neurotransmitter imbalance happens and that lead to anxiety symptoms. For example, every one eat sweet or glucose, but very few people get diabetes. You can not say that why it is happening with you. It could happen to any one. In anxiety disorder, all investigations would come normal and there is no need to get more. Better to consult a psychiatrist and get proper treatment.

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