Recently have been told that i have misfiring in lower part of the heart does anyone else have this, doc is giving me a halter test so we can figure out were the misfiring is happening, not an immediate problem except some heaviness. Doc also thinks can be from some anxiety As i am taking meds for it but sometimes it dosn.t seem to help much anyway just wondering Twiggy2.

Hi Twiggy,  Anxiety does and can cause an increase in your heart rate and blood pressure.  I hope that things come out okay for you with this...please do let us know.

I will i am not to bad right now i found a ativan pill that helped until tomrrow i am getting more. I ate well today and didn;t get nauseated like i have been so that is a plus, i think that maybe because it was sick for a couple of days that the Zoloft didn't have a chance to get into my system anyway take care talk to ya later Twiggy2.

Got my script for ativan tonight already took 2 and feelling a little better hands aren,'t shaking as much and my heart rate has slowed down a bit so i fell more relaxed a few more days and i should be ok. Back to work for three days and then home for four i get kinda bored but i am looking forward to doing things around the yard maybe going for a bike ride just chilling anyway take care all and i;ll keep in touch to let you know how things are going Twiggy2 i may also be a candidate for wellbutrin the pharamist says that the symtoms i describe to her that it may be better for me.

i haven't posted for a while hear but lately have been having major anxiety not sure why, chest pain, pounding chest, all tests that i have had done came back normal i cannot see my pych until the 17 of July and i am still taking the klonopin which helps my mind isn;t racing anymore but anxiety, i go to the emergency every other week for them to send me home with nothing and tell me to call my oych doc of family doc. I wish that my family doc would send me to see a cardiologist that or give some stronger anti anxiety meds. lol Anyway i am in the midst of trying to get prescribed wellburtin, mainly to help with quitting smoking and it also may help with some other things as well anyway talk later Twiggy2

Hi Twiggy,  I'm sorry your still having problems.  Anxiety is a terrible thing to try to control and live with.  I thought I saw in another post that you were wearing a halter monitor for 24hrs?  Who prescribed that, a cardiologist or your primary doc?

hi els. yes i did have to wear a monitor. I got it iton thurs morning last week only had to wear it for 24 hours, never really noticed anything unusual happening with my heart so there is nothing wrong. When i go to the hospital then just say follow up with pch doc or family doc as there isn;t anything they can do for me. My primary doc requested the monitor. When i went to the er the other night i was having tight sweeqing pain in my chest they checked my vitals and such and said that i was fine and so i went home. My pulse was 70 which is in normal range and my oxygen levels were also withing normal range so i still cannot figure why i was having these pains other than anxiety. i picked up some herbal tea and valarian root tablets. If the monitor comes back normal than i will ask my family doc to send me to a cardiologist he probably won;t though if the tests are normal but i think they may be able to detect more. Anyway still smoking lots but i am not expecting wellbutrin to kick right away. I still have some klonpoin but im trying stick with the valarian root for a bit. When i see my pych on the 17th he will most likely precribe me more as my mind seems to be all over the place. Take care talk to ya soon Twiggy2
