Hi. Im a GERD sufferer for more than a year now. I have observed that everytime i get upset, excited, surprised, my heart is racing. i have palpitations and i feel the pressure in my chest and worst, accompanied by hyperventilation. My cardio said eveything is fine nothing to worry. he said that my hypersensitivity system is very active. He never prescribed me any meds for this since he said everything is fine. it could also be ssociated with anxiety. please help me how to deal with this. thanks.

I am usually on the lyme forum and have been suffering from severe and sudden anxiety for 4 years. Now in treatment for lyme but have found recently that cutting out sugar has helped my anxiety and heart palps considerable. Am going to ask dr. to test sugar but may want to try it.

Heart palpitations can be very scarey. I know...I have been there. Take comfort in knowing that your doc checked you out and said everything was okay.

I have been trying meditation lately and it calms me down. Google audio meditation and some free ones will pop up. The one I do is fairly short...maybe five minutes but it talks you through slowing your breathing. I really do feel relaxed when it is over.

I hope they stop soon for you.

Blessings, kitkat
