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...

Good evening, 2 days ago I had like an anxiety attack and I was like non stop crying and all in a sudden I started coughing and my throat got tight and I couldn t breathe, my chest got tight and I felt like one of my lungs collapsed. I only get asthma symptoms when I have an upper respiratory infection or bronchitis. My daughter is asthmatic and I carry a rescue inhaler for her. I tried to reach for it did like around six puffs but I couldn t breathe so I reached out for her nebulizer and I took a Benadryl. After 3 vials of albuterol and the Benadryl, I was able to breathe a little bit better but I am not sure what really happened. I currently have no alergies or a cold. Can you get short of breath and anaphilactic shock symptoms from an anxiety attack and lots of crying? I don t understand but I felt like I was going to die from the tightness of my throat and I coulnd t get any air in my lungs. I am still feeling weak from the experience and just talking a little bit makes me feel short of breath. Any insights or thoughts of what might happened will be greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
