Chest maybe heart na..... Be careful of De-personalization and De-realization they are both worse than the plain ol panic attacks and need a different type of med and therapy. Btw----Add 1000mg of a GOOD fish oil omega 3. Best of luck!

I have been feeling a wierd pain on the back of my head for the last 4-5 days. I went to the Dr. on sunday and she looked over me and told me we had to get a blood test to better look at how i am doing. Today I i got home around 3pm and jumped in the shower. As I am taking a hot shower I feel my heart start beating faster and faster. At this point im freaking out not wanting to faint or something so i turn off the water and start to get ready. I go to the DR. right away. I wait about 20 min to be seen. I am seen by a different Dr. than I was seen on Sunday. I tell him how I been feelings and he does a heart test at first. EKG or something like that. After the test he tells me that my heart is fine. They then take my blood. He told me the results should be in by Friday. He prescribed Alprazolam 0.25MG. Does this seem like an anxiety attack do you guys? or something else?

I can t sleep at night, when i go to bed my heart rate speeds up and feels like it s pounding, i get chest pains, my left arm feels like it goes really warm and starts aching slightly and my fingers get pins and needless and go numb, i have had four attack similar to this where my heart rate goes up to 180 in resting phase, each one worse than the next.... I have this strange almost heavy feeling in my left side of my chest and feel incredibly tired all the time. PLS HELP. I have been for an ECG - appart from rapid heart rate and a sligtly elevated PB they couldn t pick up anything else, they say it might be anxiety attacks yet when this happens i am completely lucid and able to think rationally even putting my kids to bed and making bottles and keeping my husband calm... while getting ready to go to ER because my heart wont slow down, I sweat profusely when this happens and sometimes feel slightly lightheaded, i get incredibly cold when it happens and actually shake from the cold. I m female, 28, smoker, consume a fair amount of coffee and tea every day, not over the top stressed but i do have days when it gets tricky, i have a family history of heart disease, my gran (died- from a heart attack, age 38), my dad and my uncle all have really bad heart disease. These attacks started about 2 months ago out of the blue... I m starting to feel like a hypocondriac or just a crazy person...

I think I have anxiety. I am constantly worried about stupid little things that others say isn t that big of deal. I get week kneed and I feel faint. I feel like I need to throw up and sometimes I cry. I start shaking and find my chest gets tighter. My hart starts racing and my temperature drops. My palms get sweaty and the back of my neck feels hot. I know these are all symptoms of anxiety. I just really want to know how bad I have it. So as an example, I m over-seas right now. My boyfriend offered to call work for me because I can t get through and I freaked and started crying. I couldn t sit still and got very angry my boyfriend tried to help. I don t know why I freaked. I just did.

hello, I was cleaning and working up a real sweat. I bent down to pick up something and when I stood up, my heart felt like it was flopping around. I got freaked out and my anxiety started to really act up. I went to sit down and had a drink of water, trying to cool down, and it started up again for a few seconds. That freaked me out and I had a full out anxiety attack, and started shaking and hyperventilation. Now im freaked out and keep pacing around, im not sure if its going to happen again. With my last pregnancy, i was on metoprolal(spelling) cuz i had heart palpitations frequently and I didnt want it to be anything serious. I had a ultrasound done on my heart in sept 2009, and my cardiologist said my heart structure was nice and strong. I am going through a lot of stress between work and home, and i am currently on .25mg of alprozalom 2 times daily to help with anxiety. But today really freaked me out!

What could make my heart feel like it's pounding hard in my chest? Blood pressure and heart rate are normal. I've had 2 stress echo tests a year apart and everything looked good on both. I am 51, female, in menopause, and was dealing with anxiety this past summer/fall.

They did lab work, an EKG a cat scam and everything was normal, my cholesterol was 210 and the DL 138, I have been having these flushes and my palpitations accelerated as is something is going to happen ever since that day. I went to see a doctor and was prescribed Medicine for Crestor 20 ml, medicine for anxiety an panic attacks, it's normal to keep having these symptoms, will they go away or could it be something else, also ever since that day I am afraid to be by myself, something that I never experience in my life.
