Brief Answer:
Seems like an anxiety attack.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I read carefully your question and I understand your concern.

What you are describing seems like a generalized anxiety attack.
What happens is that the body accumulates stress and relives it in a physical way with these type of symptoms. You might not have had stress particularly in these days, but fr sure in the last 6 months.

My recommendation is to try to address the stress that you have now, and talk with someone or try to control it. Doing activities that you enjoy during your day may help like reading, walking, going out with friends, ect.

If these episode repeats more then 2-3 times/week then I would recommend seeing a local doctor.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,

For the last 6 months I have been experiencing what feels like palpitations. I primarily feel these in my throat and it takes my breath away. I have had a complete Cardiology work up but they continue to occur and they are extremely scary. I am afraid my heart is just going to stop beating. I drink absolutely no caffeine and absolutely nothing with any kind of stimulants in it. I also have sharp pains in my chest every now and then and pain in my esophagus. I am worried there may be something wrong and the doctors are just missing it. These palpitations create so much anxiety when they occur so of course I sit and wait for another one to happen. Does anyone have any answers?
