I developed somewhat of a phobia several years ago to cardio exercise. When my respitory and heart beat increased it would set off a panic attack. I have always been very athletic and when this started I was distressed over it. My doc prescribed klonopin for anxiety and now Im climbing 50 flights of stairs, the eliptical machine for 30 minutes, walking 3 miles, and working out at the gym without the panic and skipped heartbeats. Its disturbing to me that this was all in my head but Im happy to be back at it again. Just wanted to post this after reading about PVC"s which I had on and off for several years. Tony
Crohns 30 years. Ileostomy for 15 years. Symptom free for 14 years until 10 months ago. Was on Remicade but just recently switched to Methotrexate, low dose prednisone, and iron. Feeling wonderful.  
God Bless. Tony

Thank you so much for sharing and congratulations to you for finding a way to get past the anxiety and on with your fitness program.

Could I ask you to post this information in the Anxiety and Panic forum as we have many members in that forum with concerns re irrg heart beats and how to deal with them? Your info may be helpful to someone in that forum.

Much appreciated,
