Yes it is very scary. I came to the conclusion that every part of your body works overtime to try and fight off the bacteria. My heart would race, I'd get palpitations, strong pains in the chest, and they never found anything other than lyme. Have you tried deep breathing? It was a way for me to tell my body (and heart) that everything was ok. It is very calming.
