So I just found this website and I love it. I find it very comforting talking to others who are going through the same thing as me. I also love how you can post questions that are answered by the community or by actual doctors. I'm posting a lot of questions to know as
[More] much as I can! Anyway, a little about me. So I'm a 17 year old girl and I live in sunny (hot) Arizona. I have many hobbies like dancing, acting, writing, reading, drawing, and of course shopping! I'm almost about to start my senior year! Well this summer I unfortunately got a little something I wish I hadn't; that little something is anxiety. Its putting quite a damper on my life and making me a nervous wreck, but I'm trying to deal with it as best as I can. I appreciate all the support I've gotten from the members of the site. Thanks to all who answer my posts! :D
Two years since your posting about racing heart. Have you been checked for atrial fibrilation? This can cause severe anxiety and can be caused by valve problems in the heart and other things. Cut out ALL caffiene and cut way back on all sugary things and carbohydrates. Go to a different doctor if you have not had a good result on this - cardiologist.
Just a quick note to say hi! and glad your finding the support you need on here... if you need anything just drop a line and i will help as much as i can...p.s your sooo luck to live in a hot place Arizona sounds nice, i live in wet and windy London, England
