Been having heart palpitations, stressed, tingling down the arms, shortness of breath. Will it leave?

I ve been having heart palpitations for about 3 weeks. I have had them before but just for a day or so and it goes away. I thought it was just due to the stress of the holidays but this last week it s gotten worse. Every single day and all day long intermitantly. I had a really bad day a couple nights ago where it did really big flips like my heart was going to jump right out of my chest , I had tingling sensations down my arms. It seems to have improved now but still going on. And I m having shortness of breath also. I ve made a doctors appt, but it s not for 4 more days. What is going on? Will this go away?

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
A lot can be answered in a better way ifI was knowing your age. But the kind of problems that you have described doesn't appear to be physical in nature. It more so ever appears to be psychological.
You should get an ECG done and get a consultation from a cardiologist. If he says it is fine, which mostly is what he will say, then you should visit a psychiatrist who can train you with some relaxation techniques and also help you with CBT. He may use some drugs initially to make you feel better.
All said it is not something big you need to worry about.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further clarifications.
