Is there any relation between anxiety and heart rate?

Friends, When ever I got anxious about something my heart beat rates increased the same condition I notices if I Really got Anger on some one and make my mood to fight with, even a sudden unknown or fierce noise makes my heart beats increased. I have swelling in both ankles from last 2 years which disappear if I take 3-4 hrs long walk but swelling come again if I do some work with seating 7-8 hrs. I meet Doctors (MD) all said Nothing to Worry and give me Water Pill, have no swelling if consume Pills but swelling return as soon as I complete the course. I have frequent headache after chock up of nostril . Is all above General Problem due to wrong diet or lifestyle or I really need to see any other Doctor? I m 5.5 / Male with 75kg weight.

Increased heart beats associated with emotional outbursts is normal. It is how the heart reacts to situations where the mind rules. Ur swelling is not normal. It just shows that U are not taking in enough water. The best diuretic is water and not a pill. The pill will worsen ur condition and it is for this reason that when U stop taking the pill, ur swelling returns. For ur swelling to subside, hydrate urself with 4 liters of water a day. That is 16 glasses of a 250 ml/glass. That is the required volume for a 75 Kg. Since U have swelling as of now, start hydrating with 2.5 liters first then increase it gradually to 4 liters as ur swelling subsides. Increased intake of water will open up ur kidneys to pass out more urine and so will cause ur swelling to disappear in time. Always have ur urine color slightly yellow to clear. When ur swelling disappears for good, add 1/4 tsp of sea salt to every liter of water. This will help hydrate ur body more efficiently. Salt hold water. This will keep U fine for long. Avoid coffee, tea, sodas, chocolates and alcoholic beverages. These are dehydrating substances and will make ur condition worse. When well hydrated, ur headache will also disappear and so does the clogged nose.

Hello, My wife seems to have flu-like symptoms with a lot of congestion and some pressure breathing . The biggest issue that concerns her is that her heart rate seems to increase much more than usual randomly throughout the day, especially when she stands up. Could this be leaning more towards anxiety or something health related? Thank you, Nick

My husband, age 76, has had dizziness, right hand tingling, occasional headaches, and feeling nausea. He has had this for about a year now. His energy level is very low after doing a small chore. He has had CT scans (head), ultra sounds of the stomach which proved he has a polyp on his gallbladder. He had his prostate (cancerous) out about 9 years ago. He had 33-34 radiation treatments for this and was put on hormone treatment for two years. His blood pressure is normally fine and blood test show bilirubin normal although he has gall stones contained within the gallbladder. His doctor believes that he has the onset of Parkinson s disease but a specialist he was sent to says no. One other doctor also does not believe he has Parkinson s disease. So - what is wrong? He is becoming baffled as to what is happening to him. Please can someone help.

18, 5 5 , 125-130 lbs. I woke up feeling like I got hit by a truck. Headache that extends to my neck and shoulders, sore throat, body aches, and reduced appetite. I took Tylonal this morning and it didn t relieve my headache or pains. 7 hours later I took Excedrine and it temporarily relieved my headache. I don t know if I have a fever.

Over the last 7-8 years I had recurring chest pain . A series of tests were done including ECGs, stress test, halter test, Percentine perfusion test and CT scan andin late 2011 my cardiologist concluded that the symptoms were not heart related. Over the last two months my symptoms have returned: chest pain radiating into left arm, left side rib cage, chronic headache, sometime severe usually pressure in the ears and around them. Usually I wake up very early in the morning with chest pain, sometime palpitations and headache. Today I had a severe attack of headache as if my head is in a vice. It continues. I suffer from Acid reflux, somewhat hi blood pressure ( highest readinfg 139/ 78; average of last 11 readings 128/72) hi cholesterol, hypo thyroid (TSH up to 21.8). I am on Nexium 40mg, Metoprolol 50mg, Lipitor 20mg and El Troxin 0.075. My Endicronologist is trying to calibrate the Eltroxin dose. He thinks my symptoms are not Thyroid related. I have been trying to get an appointment with my GP since june 25. She is on holiday and the earliest appointment I got is August 17. My symptoms -- chest pain, headache, radiating pain in shoulder blade, sometimes left ribs, pressure in the eyes, ears continue and I think progressively getting worse. I was treated for prostate 8 years ago, monitored annually the PSA has been much below zero, negligible sometime difficult to trace. Sorry for such a complicated story. I do not know what to do. Should I go to the emergency everyday???? Will appreciate any suggestions

Hello Dr. Thank you for being available. Yesterday morning, I had a few bowel movements that were blonde color, but felt fine until around 6pm. I then started to feel extremely nauseous. I really didnt have an appetite , but decided to eat around 8pm. This morning, I had the blonde stool again. But this time I have a horrible headache that radiates to my neck and a rotten egg taste in my mouth (and dry mouth) as well as being nauseous. I am also very tired. Many years ago, I was diagnosed with diarrhea IBS . I am being treated with Librax and Phenegren if needed. I have taken Phenegren these past two days in hopes it will help me feel better. Although I know I have this problem, I ve never had blonde stools before and that is why I am on the web. It reminds me of a newborn s stool. I am writing in hopes you may be able to guide me in the right direction. I was laid off for two years and I no longer have health insurance. I did regain employment a year ago, but the company is so small, they cannot afford to offer health insurance, and I dont make enough to get insurance on my own. These days, health care providers turn you away if you dont have insurance. I would greatly appreciate any advice or thoughts you may be able to offer.
