I also had what you're experiencing right now. Heart starts pumping hard and fast for no reason. As soon as you think something serious is going on you start to feel lightheaded and have cold sweats (palm, heel and neck). This also happened to me before. When we panic out of fear and feel threatened like we're on an actual danger our digestive system changes, sometimes it stops or slows down to save some energy for our other organs (sometimes causing us to have constipation) and sometimes it speeds up (causing us to have frequent bowel movement, sometimes with yellowish fat-like discharge and diarrhea). Before I also thought I'm having problems with my heart that causes my body to experience these weird things but just like you my ECG was also normal. I had two ECG that was normal but still I wasn't convinced by it. Everyday I thought that I was terminally ill. That's something you're NOT supposed to do in order to break the cycle. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you especially when tests come out normal. I remember when I spent the whole day/week thinking about
it and spending too much time googling symptoms that only made matters worse. I felt so sick inside but the truth is I'm not sick. My mind was always telling me that there's something serious going on and it only made fear more intense that made me experience these weird things. You have to stop feeding your fears regarding your health. It's true that when you think of negative things, you'll feel negative. Start thinking positive and soon you'll find yourself feeling a lot better. Anxiety can't be defeated in a day. We have to work on it everyday. At first there will be a lot of ups and downs. But soon there will be more ups than downs. Before I thought I'll never have my normal life back but now everything seems good, not perfect but good. To stop feeling odd all we have to do is lessen our worries. It's ok to worry but not to the extent where we torture ourselves by absurd thoughts that takes the very life in us. I hope you'll get yourself to believe "everything is going to be fine". You're not alone.
