Sorry to hear this! Have you tried going back to your GP and see if he would give you anti-anxiety meds? It might help. Good luck :)
I don't believe it is anxiety though. I have suffered with anxiety my whole life and been on and off medication and it has never felt this awful. Even on medication my workouts were extremely limited due to the rapid heart beat and the palpitations. It seems that anytime they check for something the symptoms hide away. I am very scared I am going to go into cardiac arrest any day now because no one is listing to me or taking me seriously.
You *are* being taken seriously. The amount of testing you have undergone is clear evidence of that.
The problem is that you cannot accept what skilled, caring medical professionals are telling you.
Bearing in mind that doctors have no reason to blow off patients who are genuinely ill (after all, a patient in treatment represents income), it would be a good idea to see your counselor to find out what your logical next step would be in dealing with your fears.
I do believe I have anxiety, but i do not believe this is related, i cannot work out and my heart beats very fast, feels like it is fluttering and I am extremely dizzy constantly, my breathing is also quite weird - especially after sleeping or working out.
You are describing classic symptoms of panic disorder. I suggest you discuss this possibility with your counselor.
sounds like panic/anxiety to me. I hate calling generalized anxiety "anxiety" because some folks think this means the type of anxiety you can control or is the result of an outside stimulus. It's not.
My body was triggering all physiological responses of a panic situation (adrenaline dump so fast heart, palps, dizzy, weird thoughts..all out of the blue), I wouldn't understand why, get scared, and there's this crazy feedback loop.
It gets fixed with cognitive behavior therapy, lifestyle modifications, and certain meds if you need them.
As itdood says, it's important to understand that there is no blame or shame associated with things like panic or anxiety disorder. They are medical diseases as real as diabetes, often genetic and often life-long once they appear, and it's important to get the right kind of help for them.
I have no situation to be panicked about, that is why i am worried. This doesn't feel like panic disorder as it is 24/7. I get not breaks, and the mornings are awful or when I work out. My heart races out of my chest, i feel flutters in my chest, hard to breathe, sometimes "too easy" to breathe. I can't walk for very long. If i run my heart starts to beat out of sync, and when i throw up, my heart beat goes extremely weak and my chest feels as though my heart is going to stop.
"I have no situation to be panicked about,"
This is my point!!! anxiety disorder or panic disorder have nothing to do with a stimulus. Meaning, "it's out of the blue".
Your body is triggering the flight or fight response when it's not called for. There's all sorts of reasons it can happen. Seek assistance for this.
What itdood says.
I can't tell you how many times I've been enjoying myself, doing things I absolutely loved, when I was suddenly disabled by fear, feeling most of the awful sensations you describe.
It ruined a number of years of my life, until I found a good shrink. He tried me out on several different kinds of meds to help with the worst symptoms (and if you are offered medication, TAKE IT), and my life got a whole lot better.
You probably will not be offered the old-fashioned shrink sessions these days, because most physicians now believe they are dealing with a medical disorder.
I also hear the "it anxiety" thing, and your case doesnt sound like it. Get it checked by a cardiologist.
Anxiety is a horrible thing. I have had some good advice on here that has helped me but I'm sitting herein the middle of the night with palpitations every other beat, not sure whether to go to hospital, I'm so tired as been going on for days now, please give me some advice
