I have constant anxiety and every time I stand up and walk to do something my palpitations kick in over 200 beats per min I can feel my heart through my chest and it scares me does anyone else have this problem? And if so how do you calm a fast heart down and are able to do your daily choirs
Babydoll,,What else are you taking for your anxiety... You could talk to your doctor it is really common with anxiety to use generic inderal which helps with the fast heart beat i have taken it for years it stopped the fluttering and fast racing of the heart just a sugestion for what has worked for me for over 20 years..And i also work on my fast breathing if you notice yourself doing that by slowing down my panic using a slow and deep inhale and exhale you should check with your doctor asap... good luck worked well with me Chuck1957
Check with Cardiac Physiologist or Cardiologist. Update yourself with Atrial Fibrillation,Congested Heart Failure
and Edema. I had this and had all three. They will probably put you on heart medicines. Check with your doctor
they will do EKG and probably send you to ER to slow heart beats. Don't wait too long. Don't worry everything will be okay. Cardiac Physiologist will know what to do.
I don't have that problem too much. Heart rate elevates to 90 some times at night. Was overtired on a trip to the west coast and for 3 hours my heart was at 120 6 months ago but nothing like that since. Taking acebutol also to refuce heart rate. May have gorgotten to take it the night I was tired in California.
Also. If your heart is at 200 per minute when you move you should get a second opinion on your condition. My symptoms were like that 4 years ago. 200 beats could be a much more serious condition called V tach. I had that and almost died. They did an ablation and it is gone now. Prior to the ablation they implanted a defibrillator and it saved my life. You can't get enough oxygen when your hear flutters that fast. My wife said I was unconscious twice. Defibrillater went off 28 times that I could count. My afib heart rate peaks at anout 120.
