I'm 20, male and this started about an year ago. Whenever I feel stressed or anxious, such as on the day before exam, while waiting to go to a hospital or even when I assume I'm panicking, my heart rate becomes high an I could feel it in my chest. I once consulted a doctor and he diagnosed me with nothing but stress and elevated heart rate. I was given a mild medication and he said there was nothing to worry about. Recently I went to a hospital for checking a healing insect-bite wound. Everything was going well, but I was too scared about the process that my heart went beating at a high level (pulse was 100 I guess). They were confused until I told them my case. Are these events normal?
Totally normal, its the fight or flight reaction. When we are afraid or anxious about something our body prepares to run or battle.
