Suggest treatment for a pounding heart

I can´t relax. It feels like I feel my heart pounding in my head because I feel like im always in a stress mode. It somehow developed in the army where I was in a constant run. And when I came back nothing was normal.. I have waited 3 years to get my mood back to normal but I never seem to reach status quo. It´s starting to feel hopeless.. I also feel strange on my neck area.. Like my nervous system is stretched. If I stop breathing even then my heart pounds higher than normal and wont settle down..

Cardiologist 's  Response
Dear friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Appropriate treatment demands accurate diagnosis
Diagnosis needs physician consultation and investigations…
Get examined / A cardiologist & Neurologist can exclude any underlying lesion in their speciality
Then, psychological assessment and assistance will help / some drugs like beta blockers are useful in such situations – discuss with your primary care provider…
Prognosis is generally excellent in such situations…      

Take care
Good luck
