A couple of weeks ago I was in hospital for a prescription drug overdose. They were extremely dangerous pills (anti-psychotics). After staying in emergency I was sent to the cardiac ward for a few days as I had something called tachycardia. However now this is happening:

- can feel my own heart beating/pounding
- only able to take shallow breaths (majority of time)
- breathing extremely irregular and apparently i stop breathing in my sleep
- dizziness
- getting work out quickly, chest pain then sets in
- beating is a little fast
- breathing in makes a sound (as though I'm struggling to breathe - which I am)

Are these all related to the tachycardia but if not, what could it be? Also: will my heart go back to normal over time? I'm only 18 so please help me out!

We're not doctors and can't give medical advise. It sounds like you should see your doctor though. Maybe see a cardiologist and pulmologist?

Smurfy is correct, we cannot dx what is going on with you.  As the antipsychotic drugs are generally very potent you should check in with your Dr. re the carfdiac sx you are having.
I wish you the best,
