I have had the same problem for 7 yrs now. It started with a hyperthyroid, but it has been normal for 6 yrs. I use to take beta blockers, but they made me dizzy or my muscles weak. Beta blockers is all I know to slow it down. Sometimes holding your breathe and bearing down like you are having a BM will slow it down temp. Or chewing on ice. That is all I know.

Hi,
Thanks for query,
This seems to be due to having panic attack and anxiety neurosis,
But before we stamped out panic attack,rule out any cardiac cause.
Ok and bye.

I am 42 yrs. Recently I checked my SGPT ( ALT ) which is 66. I drink alcohol on an average 2-3 times (generally twice) a week. After 5 week staying away from alcohol it is still at same level. I am not sure if it is alcoholic or non alcoholic. Is there any means we can differentiate between alc and non-alc fatty lever problem. Kindly advice if there is any risk and means to control the ALT level. Thanks AP

I do drink to much alcohol, I ve just stopped smoking (2 weeks ago), don t take much exercise and eat sweets by the bag load. Time to change.

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)

I started experiencing an electrical shock sensation during sleep several weeks ago. I am 51 yr old female. My DR prescribed xanax for nighttime panic attacks, but the shocks continue. I have them every night, several times and if they are particularly bad, I have to catch my breath. Almost like hypervenitilating. Trying to get scheduled for sleep study....any other suggestions?
