heart palpitations, nausea, warm sensations radiating from my chest, shortness of breath, feeling off balance, difficulty concentrating, forehead pressure, butterflies in my stomache, always feeling edgy, and fatigue

22 yr old female, dallas tx.

five days ago, i was sitting on my couch, and my pulse shot up to 140 beats per minute, i had warm tingling sensations, nausea, heart burn, and thought i was having a heart attack. i called the paramedics to my house and they said i was having an anxiety attack.

ever since i have yet to feel back to normal. i still have heart palpitations, nausea, warm sensations radiating from my chest, shortness of breath, feeling off balance, difficulty concentrating, forehead pressure, butterflies in my stomache, always feeling edgy, and fatigue.

When the heart palpitations and warm sensations start, i get a sense of impending doom, and start freaking out and feel as though another anxiety attack is going to happen. I have a sense that something more is wrong, more than just anxiety. I'm scared i'm going to go into full cardiac arrest and die.

If there is any diagnosis you think my fit my symptons, or a specific type of docotor i should go see, any help would be very appreciated. i just want to feel normal again..

Ask the doctor if they will do a  fasting plasma free metanephrines test, TSH and free T 3 & 4, and female hormonal levels as well as check your iron  & ferritin blood levels.  

Also, have you had an ENT check you re:feeling off-balance?  Have you heard of inappropriate sinus tachycardia?  

If it is panic attacks, are you finding help with symptoms when using a prescribed tranquilizer from a doctor?

First, calm down. I've had symptoms like yours for nearly 30 years. Up to ten days a month. But the rest of the time, GOOD. I'm still alive at 81. Just recently I have a thyroid and heart problem and am trying to get them fixed. But those old symptoms go on and on. I wish you better luck. But remember, if you're anything like me, it's NOT FATAL.

i've had exactly the same problems for around a month now. In fact as i type i'm having palpitations now and am trying to avoid it by typing this letter. If any one has any answers they would be much appreciated as its meant i've barely left the house in the last month or so. Also it appears to be worse at night. Anxiety has been suggested but i have literally no reason to be anxious. Any help would be appreciated

definately get your thyroid levels checked plus antibodies. thyroid levels that are off can cause all those problems. including anxiety. heart paps, fatigue, off balanced, all that. check out your thyroid levels. plus antibodies for hashimotos or graves,
