  Why I am I constantly feeling like I am short of breath?  I feel like I can't even exercise anymore without my heart pounding out of my chest!

verybusy,
I feel the same way. I have a 2 story house, and carrying my 5 month old up about 13 stairs makes me so out of breath! The littlest things make my heart beat like crazy!!!

Does your heart do this even when you aren't doing anything at all? Mine does when I am just sitting down reading or apparently when ever it feels like it! I have three children under 7 and I've been feeling so badly lately. I feel like a weak mother.

I live in a fourth floor walkup and it's weird...some days my heart races and I'll get winded coming up the stairs, and other times I don't.

Does it happen every time you exercise or just sometimes?

   Hi ya'll I use to get the pounding of the heart too is it would stop me dead in my tracks from it but as time past I got use to it and now I just don't pay no mind to it as it is just a part of my anxiety of being hypersensitive to my body and how the mind overreacts to it thinking that I'm going to die from a heart attack and it dosn't mean that you are weak as miny of us have some kind of fatigue from it as well.

I would feel this way when my anxiety was really bad. The punding of my heart would just take over and its all I would be able to concentrate on. Have you spoken with your doctor about this? Maybe if he arranged an ECg for you, it would put your mind at rest. I had an ECG and it was normal, then I could sit back and think phew, its anxiety theres nothing wrong with my heart.

I notice my heart beating alot of times. Maybe I should ask my doctor for an EKG. Do people without anxiety not notice these things?

I get the same thing walking up stairs, I think mine is due to muscle tension... my body is working much harder than it should to get up them. A little out of breath too... yet I can go play softball with my kids and be fine.. just can't pull myself up stairs without racing/pounding heart. Kinda weird.
