Dummy me, I keep having palps and tightness in my chest, probably anxiety, nothing real new for me. Somehow I felt the need to look up info anyways. Big mistake! Grrrrr.

i just did the same thing! Ugh!
Most of the time I don't... but
every once in a while i just sit
here thinking "THERE has got to
be something wrong!"
I am going to go check my bp
at Kmart today. I have been taking
blood pressure meds for a week now.
Hope that it's down : )

I don't do it much either. Every once in a while I just feel compelled to do it. It's never good. Geez, just about every symptom you could possibly have could be heart disease or cancer. when will I learn

I do the same thing and I know it only makes me panic more. I always look up symptoms which then brings up 10 diseases and I sit there and wonder what I have, then get all freaked out about it. Im a hypochondirac too which only makes things worse. But I really think its all just a part of our anxiety because we always have the "what if" thoughts anyways..

Another what-iffer here. What exactly is a palpitation? I get flutters at times and "skips" at other times. Every time it happens I freak out. In fact, I have had 3 fluttery episodes today. Once after I worked on my checkbook, once sitting in traffic that was backed up and the last one was when I forced myself to get on my stationary bicycle (I am super tired.)

I never symptom surf anymore, because I would be in a straight jacket.

God bless you. You are not alone.

I try to stay away from the health boards too, but every now and then I just need my fix of it lol. I think I always have to have something to worry about or things are just not normal...talk about Ocd.

Ooops! We've all been there...now forgive thyself and resolve Never Again! I used to have the " there's something wrong with my heart" anxiety too. I got such relief by asking my doctor for an e.k.g. He was really nice about it, and it was easy and non-invasive. I also asked him about the palps and he said that they are benign, and a lot of people have them (unaware of it) and they get better when you learn to ignore them. Have your family stage an intervention in the event that you get the surfin' urge again, and get a doctors evaluation on your heart for reassurance... you will feel much better!
