Constant Rapid Heart Beat and shortness of Breath
Hi, I am 29, male. Since last 3 months I am having shortness of breath, like I can't get a good deep breath, my GP and Cardiologist thinks its Anxiety as my ECG, Blood Tests, Chest X Ray, 2D Echo with Color Doppler and Stress Test all came back normal, so He put me on anti anxiety and anti depressant and anti biotics for Sinusitis (sinus x ray showed Sinusitis), BP is 130/80 to 120/80 with BP meds, recently I have noticed constant Rapid Heart Beat, is this all because of anxiety or what? I can't make mind calm, its just running with negative thoughts all the time

If your mind is running with negative thoughts, it wouldn't be unexpected to have a fast heart rate and higher blood pressure. That condition would be related to anxiety and not a cardiovascular disorder..but there could be concomitant heart related issues and apparently tests have ruled that out.  The medication shouldn't be the cause, but it may take some time for your system to adjust.

Thanks for your quesiton, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.  Takc cae,
