Wierd Gurgling Chest sensations and derealisation

I have been getting strange sensations both in my chest and kind of blazey feeling (brain fog/derealisation).  The first signs happened about 6 months ago where I thought I was having a heart attack and subsequently have been told it was a panic attack.  I was smoking cannabis at the time and have now stopped and now seem to have these wierd sensations on a daily basis.  I am 25 and have had numerous visits to A&E and have had irregular heart beats and have been to see a cardiologist.  As from other posts no-one seems to take it seriously as being heart related and have passed it off as anxiety.  I do agree I am more anxious now as each time I get these strange sensations I get anxious about where they are coming from and why.  What I would like to know is why these sensations have all of a sudden come about and is there any cure as I can be fine one minute and the next I can have gurgling or wierd chest sensations and also derealisation or depersonalisation.  I am also finding that after a couple of bad attacks I tend to constantly check my pulse when sensations start as I have been told by ambulances that my pulse was slow and irregular during an attack and very weak.  I have read a lot about anxiety and my pulse should be racing not slow and irregular?? Can anyone shed some light on this for me? I have also noticed one of my eyes gets bloodshot very regularly on the nose side - dont know if this is related or not.

Sounds like you may have Atrial Fribrillation. I have it and your symptoms sound similar to mine. There are medications for this disease- it can be helped. AFib makes me veeerrry anxious.

I have almost the same problems that you have, for the last year or so, after waking up one night and having my pulse racing, I went to the hospital, after many tests which came up inconclusive they sent me home, saying it was chest wall pain, or anxiety. That was a year ago and I still have chest pain, and that gurgling sensation almost everyday. Frankly it scares me terribly, being only 20 non-smoker/drinker and only weighing around 150 lbs. with no previous heart problems, I'll admit that I'm kinda at the end of my rope here, and feeling a bit hopeless. I was just wondering if you have found anything to help treat it at all?

I have chest gurgling too!! very scary! I only get every once in a while... I also have palipations all the time, meaning @ least once a day! also I wake up @ night with my heart beating fast, like i am having a panic in my sleep... I have these problems since my mom died:( I think I am going to start going to counseling. Hopefully it helps! I feel like I do not want to go anywhere either , due to these weird conditions...
