I have been having alot of the palpitations (skipped beat feeling) since thursday morning when i started a new job. i got laid off 2 weeks ago for no reason. anyway, i'm a legal sec. i came from a big firm to a one man office now. i thought i would love it so why am i freaking out? this guy is going through a divorce so lives in his office - made me work 2 hours late last night and then asked me to come back and watch a movie with him and eat or he could come get me. ugh

i went to urgent care last night just to make myself feel better or so i thought and now i'm wondering if i should go back for further testing. it was late when i went and their lab was closed. i'm thinking electrolyte imbalance, anemia?? i'm sure it's not - never had those problems before but wondering. so to go back today because i didn't request last night - they will make me pay another co-payment. ugh
they did an EKG and it was fine - but nothing else.

i have had 2 holters and an echo in the last 5 years so i have a structurally normal heart. i guess i keep thinking what if it turned into some deadly arrithmia? ugh i'm pretty sure it can't but still worry. sheesh
i took .5 mg of klonopin the last two days and it only helped for a short while. not much. i also already take atenolol for hbp. i wish i could control these stupid things!! i know i'm giving them too much attention for sure but it's hard not to.

i also have GERD i guess - found out recently i have a slow moving stomach and maybe causing it. it's never caused this many palpitations though.

Hey Hazel,
I think we talked about some of your recent issues in the anxiety forum but I did not want you to feel you were ignored in the Heart Forum.  I know today is your test day and I wish you the best.
