My anxiety symptoms have switched many times over the years. And yes, I have had the heart flutters and skipped beat feelings. I always go to the doctor when a new symptom arises just to clarify that it is not a life threatening disease. Plus it eliminates any health fears which usually causes my anxiety to take control and worsen the symptoms. Almost all people have skipped beats, they just do not feel them. Anyone prone to anxiety is supersensitive to any/all physical symptoms. I now take a magnesium supplement which was prescribed by my cardiologist but can be bought OTC. I rarely have skipped beats anymore. And when I do, I just say "Not now anxiety, I don't have the time for you!"
Please accept my sympathy at the death of your Father.
Yes you can have your sx change and I think soul gae you good advice.
Check with your physician and then once you have ruled out any physical problems.............you can try to just stay in the moment when you feel the skipped beats and tell yourself your ok.

Warm welcome to HW, I am sorry that you have lost your father, that must be hard. Anxiety can take many forms and it is not uncommon for us to have different "symptoms and signs" around this.
My first panic attack was brought on by very obvious causes but my second came out of the blue. It can happen. Have you given any thought to counselling? You must be feeling pretty freaked right now. I send you hugs xx
