I used to work with directv answering phonecalls. Until one day i started feeling weird and having chest pains. I called an ambulance and they came to my work and i got in the ambulance. right before they took me in i was feeling better. so they checked my oxygen levels and it was reading good levels. Went to the doctor and he concluded i was having a panic attack. Took me 2 years 2 overcome it with medication and no longer using Xanax.

My health history. Ive always been overweight and i have had multiple visits to the doctor (2 - 3) for high blood pressure. Now i am in college and i started feeling familiar symptoms to when i had high blood pressure. Not all of them but some... I just started a diet so im thinking mal nutrition. Here is what happen to me yesterday and today.

Yesterday i had a flip flop feeling in my sternum. like a skipped beat. ive felt it every now and then during the week but that day it felt like i had 3 back to back. I got a bit scared, called the parents told me its normal... Last night i could not sleep. so i stayed up on the computer and slept for about only 2 hours. Been sleeping very little lately. (this week Mostly) Last night also i felt my eyes kinda burning. and i noticed i had a small headach. Woke up after the 2 hours and i felt fine. Went to class then i layed back on my chair and closed my eyes for a bit. started rotating on the chair from left to right still facing up closed eyes and i got dizzy. My Panic personality triggerd a bit but was able to diffuse it quick since im used to it. Came home slept 2 more hours still feel a bit dizzy when i rotate a bit looking up. if i bend over or lean to a side i feel like its pulling me.

Pains and discomforts ive had lately. Jaw pain, could be because i sleep on it. but it feels like its a nerve pinching at times.. Left sided pinching on my chest... but it can be explained by anxiety. pain went away since i have calmed down. Pain in my left arm while having sex is also another thing happening to me. What you think?

i am not sure i clearly understood your question, but i wanted to comment on the skipped heartbeat issue you describe. i had similar symptoms on multiple occasions. On all occasions, i was on flight, returning after a business trip and i was trying to relax. During my business trip, i do take 2 glasses of wine in evening and sleep much less in night. I do not drink otherwise. My doctor told me it is normal to have skipped heartbeat in such circumstance and it usually kicks in when your mind/body goes from busy mode to taking rest. I think he called it Palpitations.

I suspect you may be experiencing anxiety and your heart flip-flopping could be do to anxiety,  hehydration and your hypertension.  I would suggest you see your Dr. to make sure nothing new has come up with your heart.
If your heart checks out OK then move on to your PCP to see about getting help with your anxiety as well as your diet. 
You did not mention if you are on any BP medications as perhaps your skipped beats could be related to medications.
Please let us know how you are doing and keep on talking with us.
