Hello, I'm 17. I suffer from panic disorder and anxiety. I was always an active, healthy child but recently I have been resting a lot due to my anxiety. Every time I stand my heart beats extremely fast and it scares me. I have been to a cardiologist back in march and I have been to the ER recently and they both said that everything looked good. Could this be from resting too much? Also I have stopped eating candy and very salty foods. Could this be from low blood sugar or salt? If so, what can I do to help this? Anything will help. Thank you.

hey mate, you rest too much and ya heart got to work more to get movin, a bit of postural drop, always arise to ya feet slowly from lying down, swing the legs over the side, wait a minute, feet down and slowly get up. let me know. and water, plenty of h20, kidneys regulate ya blood pressure.

Thank you so much. I've been so scared. I've been wanting to exercise but I'm scared that that'll make it worse.

just walk. good blood flow, oxygen, gets all of the parts movin'. it's a bit like trying to start a car that has sat in the cold too long, needs a kick. and walkin' will help with ya anxiety. laying down or resting can make it worse. so, up and at em young person. water bottle and of and explore. go somewhere ya never been. good food for the brain, stops the rot. keep well.

BhIll, agree with Turtle. Exercise. At age 17, with 2 cardiologists telling you all good, you've got nothing to worry about except your anxiety. What you are describing is classic panic attack symptoms. Exercise will help in the ways Turtle described, and also it will reduce stress.
You should probably consider psychotherapy, to get to the bottom of your real issue, causing panic attacks to occur.

When I stand or walk for even 2 minutes I start feeling lightheaded & my body becomes heavy. I also been getting weird headaches and pain in my right calf.

I want to thank you for helping me. Walking has been helping a lot and I try to move around more. It's a pretty slow process but I'm getting there. Hopefully I'll be able to start going back out with my friends soon.
