Feel like heart skips beat, veins on left arm, left of neck and chest are deep blue, armpit hurts. What's wrong ?

I am a 22 year old female in good health with no previous heart problems or family history of heart problems. I don t take any medications . Here s the problem My heart feels like it keeps skipping beats, like I get hit in the chest and everything hurts like sludge is going through my body. The veins on my left arm , the left of my neck , and chest are all deep blue and my armpit hurts. Last night I attended a friends birthday bash and was an idiot and left my drink alone for a minute, I came back and downed it and my mouth went numb and my heart started racing and I felt like I needed to run, as well as my pupils dialated. I think some ass hole put cocaine in my drink. What s wrong with my arm and why does it hurt so bad? Please help

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

From the descroption of your symptoms there could be two possibilities - one is a crdiac-related problem, second is an anxiety-related problem. Anxiety can manifest itself with not only psychological symptoms, but with physical symptoms also.

I would advise you to get yourself examined by a doctor and have an ECG done to rule out any cardiac problems. If everything is fine, then it is likely to be an anxiety-related problem. If this is the case, there are effective treatment options available - in the form of medication or psychological therapies. I would also like to caution you that frequent or excessive alcohol intake can trigger or worsen anxiety disorders.

Wish you all the best.
