First off, I am seeing a cardiologist right now literally for anxiety. He was nice enough to do tests because I am a bit of a cardiophobe... I did an Echocardiogram and a monitor and now I am just waiting for the results. The lady who did my echocardiogram said she saw nothing that alarmed her at all except a fast heart rate which slowed down as I talked to her. I think my rate was 125ish. Which is super normal for me if I am anxious and in public.
I was driving to the cardiologist this morning to drop off my 48 hour monitor. I was a little anxious driving there... I tried working on my breathing because I do tend to take deep breaths through the mouth. I find it impossible to breathe through the nose... It feels like I wont get enough air. I been told I am a chronic hyperventilator so that's just peachy. I been doing this since 3rd grade and I am 22 now so this is nothing new to me. I am familiar with anxiety symptoms. However I have never had this one...
The best I can describe it is a tickle, irritation, kinda of pressure feeling that sits directly over my heart. No pains... Except briefly and its about a 1 on a scale of 10 when there is. It literally sits directly over my heart. It's lasted for about 40 minutes now. My anxiety shot up pretty good at the cardiologist... I have a constant need to keep rubbing my chest area where my heart sits because I try and get rid of the tickle feeling. I'm not even freaking worried about it but I was curious if anyone else has felt this. It's kinda an uncomfortable feeling. I keep massaging my chest area. This is exactly where my heart sits... My acid reflux is a little bad but this is DIRECTLY in my chest right where my heart sits. Left side... I don't know how much I can express this.
Thanks guys... Just want to see if anybody else has experienced this. The pressure is getting a little worse. Nothing bad enough to where I am doubled over in pain. I'm so tired of ER's and doctors I actually have told myself if it is a heart problem I am not even going to go to the doctor. I would rather pass away at this point.
