Fed up of anxiety

I suffer with Anixety for over a month now and have consent palpitations everyday.... im so fed up with the paliptations im always going to my docs to check my heart and have had 2 ecgs, im waiting to have my blood taken and the heart monitor watch, even after these tests i think the worst everyday and i have a busy life with 2 kids and work and an relationship. I just want it all to go away i wont take meds they made me 100 per cent worst! I take herbal tablets instead. Does anyone else suffer with consent palpitations everyday, really worries me.

there are 2 things that can really help. 10mg of lexapro will take the edge off, but not drug you. it is strictly an anti-anxiety. it has no side effects except getting rid of the feeling/fear of anxiety. also EMDR therapy to find out the source of your anxieties. your general doctor can prescribe the meds, find a local therapist that does EMDR.
