Hi,
From your history it seems that you have got Anxiety with depression but before we stamp the diagnosis you have to go for,
Xray for frontal sinuses to rule out acute/chronic sinusitis.
Eye check up,
High blood pressure,
X ray cervical region to rule out cervical spondilitis.
If above all reports are normal then consult psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment.

I sometimes feel this sudden sinking feeling in my chest region .. specially along the windpipe and below. It occurs almost 1-2 times daily and lasts for hardly 1-2 seconds. I'm a heart patient detected of HOCM and i also have some gastric problems .. is this feeling related to my heart rythm or is it because of the gastric problem.

I have A Fib. I had a cardiac ablation. The procedure should have taken 4 hours. It took my Dr. 7 and 1/2 hours and he told me he could only do 3, as one part was too close to my wind pipe and he did not want to chance nicking it. I am currently taking Metoprolol, Tikosin, and Digoxin. I am experiencing A Fib off and on, dizziness, tingling in my left thumb and forefinger, and occasional heartburn. What could be causing these symptoms?
