Well about 3 months ago I had a huge anxiety attack (first ever) after consuming a certain substance. After that, I began experiencing them every day. I had heart palpitations, rapid heart beat, shortness of breath, lightheadedness..
I went and got an EKG, Echocardiogram, Holter Monitor, Chest X-Ray, and blood tests that all said I was fine. I have a stress test scheduled for next week. I have been diagnosed with anxiety.
However, during this period I've been noticing I have a lot of gas. I have also been salivating a LOT more, and coughing up phlegm, but I thought this was just because I used to smoke. I get this sensation, that I feel I need to burp. When I try to, it's really hard, and all that comes up is saliva, phlegm, and I can taste vomit in the bottom of my throat. It usually regurgitates right after. I get chest pain on my left side, sometimes bad sometimes not. And whenever I get out of bed, and walk over to my dresser, my heart starts racing and pounding.
I can be sitting still for a while and my heart will randomly start pounding. Sometimes I feel it just pounding away in my throat, or right in the center of my chest under my ribs, or if I lie on my left side I can feel it pounding then as well.
I have a feeling I know what substance you consumed. But I will let you be the one to decide on telling. If it is what I think, anxiety attack is a consequence of taking it, due to the part of the brain it affects. But, I can't say for sure not knowing what it actually was you took. When you went for the tests and were diagnosed with anxiety were you put on any meds? Have they helped? How old are you? Meds can cause GI symptoms, saliva, gas, etc.
