don't sound like anxiety to me

mvp can cause palpations and chestpains. i would sugest keeping your eye on it getting regular echocardiograms if you feel out of breath with it . anxiety usally dosent cause symptoms like that anxiety is more of a panic fight flight response wich would not cause all day chest pains and would come with other symptoms . they done a study on people who where diagnoised with panic attacks and most of them had heart disorders i think anxiety is diagnoised to much and aparently its the new illness for everything  that doctors cant figure out.you would know if you had this for 3 years if was anxiety. your doctor already told you you have a leak have a look at mvp you will see most of your symptoms. good luck all the best fairy

i have severe health anxiety related to my heart i get chest pains, palps etc etc i too have been diagnosed with anxiety although i dont believe my doctor lol although i have had this on and off for 14 years  and severly for  the last 18 months so in my opinion it is possible to have these symptoms and it just be anxiety otherwise surely something severe would have happened to me after all this time?

i too suffer from anxiety i have suffered with this for 10 years. there is alot of difference between both of them anxiety is a fear feeling of doom  what she decribed is mvp and has been diagnoised with it wich is a valve leakage of the heart. you can live a long time with mvp and has alot of the same symptoms as anxiety . i just think doctors are so quick to say anxiety  i suffered from meneiers disease for 7 years undiagnoised  they said was anxiety i just knew it wasnt i demanded a test from a ears nose throat specialist and it was'nt anxiety it was menieres how many people does this happen too . i just think people should get every test they can to rule out heart problems because even tests can be wrong especially the stress testsand ekg so many people especially women are given a clean bill of health to have a heartattack the next week i personally know women who this has happened to the gold standard test for the heart is angiogram .chest pain is not normal  and i believe the anxiety is caused from stressing over the symtoms (symptoms) of your heart and not knowing what they are there are alot of things that can cause chest pains gerd being one of them and that can put presure on the vagus nerve wich can cause palpations . mvp can cause anxiety symptoms and can be harmless to live with.its best to know the warning signs of heart problems are you getting pain with excursise ? cold sweats ? do you have to rest to make chest pain go away ? i have had panic attacks for ten years and never have i had chest pain with it . i now suffer with chest pain from heart realated problems i am due for a angiogram . my panic attacks where like doom like i was going to die i become frightend my heart would go fast id feel shaky feel sick wanted to run feeling fight flight response. this heart realated stuff i get now is totally diffrent . personally i dont trust doctors unless they take the time out to listen to me and test me and not diagnoise me with mental problems before rulling out my medical problems i know my body and i know with in myself the diffrence from a panic attack and feeling sick.

also pvcs pacs,svt can feel like panic attacks and give the same symptoms and even make you a nervouse wreck than eventually cause panic attacks becouse your scared of having another one but they are actually caused by the heart not panic . panic attacks are caused from stress ,fear,depression, illness phobias. panic attacks is  adrenlian giving our bodies the urge to fight or run this is a natural response in times of danger and its an intict man and animals have sometimes the chemicals in our brains our given out the wrong signals maybe because we have been in alot of dangerouse postions like abused as a child or adult this is emotinal panic disorder sometimes it can be a hormonal or a imballance in the body alot of illnesses can present them selfs like anxiety . and alot of heart realated disorders . anxiety is not healthy and puts alot of strain on the body and especially the heart because the palpations cause the heart to work alot harder  and this puts a strain on the heart so please get it dealt with find a doctor who will listen to you. anxiety is a symptom not a disease its your body telling you something isnt right could be emotinally or phsyical  but are bodies talk to us and these symptoms should not be ignored.

hiya i have sent you a reply to your pm, i have had loads of tests and a cardio was with me when i had my stress test to check the results straight away cause i was so anxious also the last time i had an ECG i was having chest pains at the time and it still came as normal, i dont have cold sweats more hot sweats all i tell myself is surely if there was something seriously wrong i would be having more or more intense symptoms after all this time, i have seen my doctor at least once a week for the last 14 ish years and as a friend on the anxiety forum said "surely he would have sent me to a cardio if he thought there was something serious? they cant mess with peoples lives?" i have had my heart sounded only last week and my blood pressure taken everything was good, i tried to get a private echo but in order to do that i have to see a private cardio first and he would refer me, my doc said it would be a total waste of my money cause the cardio would not refer me for a scan cause my heart is healthy???????????????????????

scaredjo you need to tell your dr that you demand having a echocardiogram young people can have heart problems too and for your peace of mind you need this tell him its your right and it wouldnt be a waste of time for your peace of mind. or see a new dr i cant believe with your symptoms he has not given you a echocariogram . i had to kick and scream for tests because of my age. look you might not have anything dangerously wrong with you alot of things can cause chest pains but isnt it best to rule out any heart problems and at least when you have echo done you will feel relieved . im not trying to scare you as really i dont think its seriouse as you have had for so long and its not getting worse. but i think you have the right to have a echo. im sure your gp just reffers you for echocariogram they have them at the hospital ? or a phsician if not id go see a cardio yes he or she will say anxiety because of your age and the way your coming across but you need to beg and plead and demand one. p.s doctors do mess with peoples lives i have been to dr to dr who all said anxiety i had to beg drs for tests and to see a cardio thankgod i did tell your doc about mvp tell him that these also cause anxiety and chestpain tell him that not all murmers are picked up and goldstandard for this is echocariogram. are you on any medication. oh and what where the first symptoms you got? best of luck let me know how you go .

i take beta-blockers thats all to stop me getting worked up, cant even remember my first symptoms its been that long prob palpatations years ago, then i read up on things and diagnosed myself with heart problems, in my life i also believed i had strokes, blood clots, brain tumour, and brain aneurisms i had teast for all these too and nothing was found even though i had the perfect symptoms to match each disease and i mean the perfect symptoms!!!! jus like my heart i get the perfect symptoms my mum has a serious heart murmur after having a glandular fever as a child and that was picked up 40 years ago just by listening to her chest??

i agree with u ,the same happened to me .i was told i had anxiety for 14mths.i kept telling my doc that my heart was running fast at night time and i know him for quite a time but because im young and had been through a difficult time with something else they put it down to anxiety ---until oneday a sympathetic endocrinologist who i was seeing with blood sugar probs deiciced to give a monitor for a day to see what was going on .3 weeks later even when i went back to her she didnt have the results and cause all my other bloods were fine she told me to be on my way and if the test showed up anything [MONITOR} she would be in contact.i stayed and demanded the results of the monitor and had to wait 4 hrs for them and when they came back ,she could look me in the eye ,and i was rushed down to cardio ,talk to me about anxiety now .i was having massive bursts of svt in my sleep 250+ and during the day.anyway i wont go into the whole story but sometime docs miss out on things but i learnt the hard that u must also stand up for yourself when u feel something is not right with your health.i now have been left with the anxiety from all of that and that was a year ago .i think your point is good
best of luck with your tests i hpoe it goes well for u

ok am really freakin now i have had my heart sounded so many times i cant count, numerous ECG`s, 24hr monitor and stress test surely if i had MVP it would have been detected i just read on google it can be detected just by having your heart listened to also it said you need anti-biotics before dentistry (which my mum has for her murmer) i have had about 8 teeth out and 5 fillings and never been ill after HELP i`ll never sleep tonight

oh god i sure u will sleep to-night .if u have been through all those tests i am sure your heart is ok.i think fairybells was saying to u for your own peace of mind that an echo might be good.i know for myself no-body would give me an ekg until i had the monitor-i have loads since and have to wear a monitor again in 2 weeks.the whole heart thing is very worrying esp if u are having symptoms.i have the whole anxiety thing with mine going on as well it is tiring to say the least.
