I just cross posted this in the Anxiety forum as well.

I DO suffer from anxiety and most recently terrifying crippling panic attacks.

Newest sensation ( which i think ive felt in the past just not as intense ):
I feel as though my heart has stopped, i cant breathe and a warmth spreads over me .

I recently had to have my metoprolol increased from 25mg to 50mg as my PVCs are back with a vengeance after being pretty MIA for 3 months.

I guess im just terrified that my heart will do that and it'll just stop completely....

Hi Melissuh, it does sound like the panic attacks are getting the best of you. Try to concentrate on getting it under control & I bet this newest sensation will cease. Take back your control over the panic.

Take care.

Im certainly hoping so! The heart stopping/not being able to breathe/warmth feeling is horrible!
