It makes it hard when you are unable to understand your symptoms and you do not feel right. Good idea to check in with your doctor. Sometimes it helps to write all your symptoms down before going to see your doctor. People who have never had depression can have a hard time relating to it. Hopefully you will get some answers and support from this site and your doctor :)
I have experienced the heart palpitations as well but only occasionally. I don't ingest much caffeine but when that feeling starts I completely avoid caffeine. The pounding scares me. The less caffeine I consume the less I experience the palpitations. I hope this helps as it has helped me.
I would definitely get your hormones measured ASAP and take the appropriate medication to get and maintain a balance, you also need a CBC, Thyroid, A1c, homocysteine and MMA tests (and probably others). I would think PCOS before the Prozac being the problem since you've been on it for 2 years. Try and get a referral to an Endo from your GP and ask for Xanax or Ativan til then, if your hormones are off your entire body feels it and if your have pain get an Ultrasound done
