also having heart related symptoms 4 Years, 11 Months ago  
Hello All,

I have had the "anxiety disease" for approx. 38 years. I am currently 55 yrs of age. I have read many books that explain EXACTLY what I am feeling, the course that this takes, etc. As stated in the books, I go through periods of time where I am doing well and then the various symptoms begin to take on a life of their own. I lead a very full, wonderful life. The anxiety, however, absolutely takes a huge toll on the enjoyment and peace that I could, and should be, feeling. Currently, I have been having the feeling of my heart skipping beats, racing, pounding, etc. It has actually been going on for the past month or so. I also have a "shortness of breath" that I can't exactly explain. I workout regularly with no shortness of breath or chest pain. I was last at the Dr. in October and received a very good report during my annual check-up. I am on lexapro, but it is obviously not working, if this is indeed anxiety. I have a small prescription of klonipin that I take very sparingly. Any words of encouragement or advice would be appreciated. This is SO very exasperating and worrisome! Thank you.

Re:also having heart related symptoms 4 Years, 11 Months ago  
your uneven heart beats aren't so uncommon. Those happen to people with anxiety as well as to the others. They might be side effect of the meds you taking. If you feel your lexapro isn't doing you much needed good, you may consult your presribing psychiatrist to ask for either change in med or change in dose.
10 years ago I spent three days in hospital with heart attack symptoms, only to be discharged with anxiety diagnosis and antianxiety med prescription, which I never filled.
There might be something new and exciting lurking around in your life which excitment can be overexciting your heart impulses, therefore your uneven beats.
Have you had any heart test peformed at your annual check-up?
If on insurance, it may be beneficial to check on strenuous activity heart holter results.
From my angle I see you as healthy person that experiences new changes in your body, which since new, might be knocking some windows never knocked before.

To be free of worries, have some additional checkups. Once with the good results in your hands, you will be able to refocus on your pleasant activities.
