I have another doctor appointment next week to discuss my anxiety problem with my PCP but in the meantime need some help.
Every morning I wake up and my heart starts pounding and stays like that all day. I try not to focus on it but can't help it but do. I am taking Xanax 3 times a day and still doesn't seem to help. I can't take antidepressants as they cause severe side effects.
I am off work today and don't have any pressing errands or anything that would be causing anxiety but my heart is still pounding. If I put my hand on my chest you cannot feel it but it feels like my whole upper bounding is shaking.
How do I deal with this? Is there anything anyone has found that works for this particular physical symptom of our anxiety? I want it to STOP.
