A little about me.
I have had pretty high heart anxiety for years. There has not been a day in over 5 years I have not been worried about my heart. I had what I am pretty sure was a panic attack about 5 years ago and the anxiety has be constant ever since.
I am grossly overweight. I am 6'0 and weigh about 340 pounds. I have a ton of debt for ER visits and dr visits. In the last 5 years I have had 2 stress tests and about a dozen EKGs. The last EKG and stress tests were about 3 years ago. Recently I have been trying to exercise but have been having left arm pain. So I talked to my doctor (GP not carido) and she took blood work. This was in November. Some of the numbers are below.
BP - 128/78
LDL - 145
HDL - 27
wbc - 7.5
rbc - 5.19
There are alot more. If something is relevant let me know I probably have it.
She said everything was fine and to exercise. So I have been walking. At first all was well, but now not so much. I was doing about 14000 steps a day. Now when I start walking, I'd guess around 400 or so steps I start getting really bad heart burn, acid coming up my throat. And then weird feeling in my chest. It is not a constant feeling it happens briefly for a second and passes. I think it might be my heart skipping a beat. However I don't know how that feels. The sensation is strange in my chest, it makes me take a quick, sudden deep breath, and then a weird feeling radiates outward and then gone. It doesn't hurt, it is scary. A couple times after it has happened I get a strong pain in my shoulder. It is not radiating, it is very isolated to my shoulder. Then I get light headed briefly and then that passes. The fitbit I wear has a HR monitor on it. My resting pulse is about 80. When I am walking it gets up to about 110-120. I think I am noticing that when I walk faster to get the HR up, and then let it drop is when the feeling occurs. Like if I go to 130 and slow down and it drops back to 110.
Do you think this is an actual heart problem? More anxiety? Due to the heart burn?
Also I have chest pain almost always if I have to deficate.
