Go to the doctor. It vary well may be stress related. Stress is no joke. It can make you physically sick, as well as mentally tired. I had the same symptoms about a year ago, and my doctor had prescribed something mild for me to take, just for awhile. I knew what was causing my anxiety and had to face it . Please make an appointment with your doctor. Sometimes a person can be so stressed that they don't realize how anxious they really are. Hope you feel better.

hello Hello im actually asking a question for a female friend. Shes 32 and does stress out and has anxiety at times. But she complains about chest pain(tightening pains) on the left side over her breast which id assume thats her heart. She has rapid heart beats sometimes, sweats and overheats, pain in her back and fuzzy feelings on her right arm and leg all when her heart acts up. She does have some kinda valve heart disease if i remember correctly which has something to do with the valves not opening or shutting enough to give the heart blood. I think thats what it was. Anyways she said doctors always tell her she just has anxiety but theres gotta b more to it then just that. Shes scared and it worries me. Its a good friend of mine.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
