I try to do the deep breathing occasionally...sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't.
My heart doesn't typically race. At times it does when I'm anxious and other times when I'm anxious it actually beats more slowly...weird? Anyway, when I get palpitations I get the skipped heart beats mostly and then once in a while I get the really weird feeling heart rhythm which is THE absolute worst!! Hate that.
It's just been a strange feeling day for me for some reason. Like I said, I've been pretty proud of myself for staying calm over the past few days other than my PMS grumpy mood that I was in for two days
, but other than that I've been trying to keep myself in the present and not ruminate and hyperfocus so much. Then today my palps started to act up and I've been more aware of body sensations and things again and that's why I was wondering how long it takes before symptoms start to settle down.
I've also almost developed a new one of this odd feeling in my throat right in between when your collar bones meet and your throat/neck dips in a little, it sort of feels like my throat feels when I have a bad cough with a cold and last night I felt like my throat was closing and I had a lump in the back of it, BUT I do have terrible sinus problems anyway and was recently diagnosed with GERD so most likely that's the culprit I'm assuming. Who knows.
Anyway, any thoughts would be appreciated...thanks as always everyone!!
