Hello ! I have Panic and Anxiety disorder and Ocd and depression. I am On Zoloft 100 mg now for 7 months. I have been doing very well on this. My major symptom from anxiety is DP ( depersonalization) tingling and Crazy thoughs. Ok , so now that I have all of that pretty much under control, last night I was sitting here on the computer playing my game like normal and my heart starts skipping beats and feeling like it was klopping around in my chest. This lasted for a good hour or better. Now I know there is nothing wronge with my heart as I have had An Stress test and echo and Ekg about a year and a half ago. Is this something any of you all have had due to anxiety?? I know that it shows its ugly face in different forms. I am just trying to keep my mind straight and not think crazy thoughts. Thank you so much for your time confused

I am wondering if jo1972uk may have a point, were you possibly drinking something with caffiene that might have raised your heartrate?

Yes, anxiety and fear can cause palpitations. Anxiety also makes some ppl hyper vigalent about their bodily sensations so they notice everything going on with their body.

Try not to get caught up in the "what if's" or "why me" and know you have been tested with all normal results.

If you notice a change in the palpitations or new sx please do check in with your physician.
