Hi Angest:


I suffer with anxiety and have never felt that.  i feel terrified and my chest gets tight , i can't breath, my hand get sweaty.  i feel like i'm going to be sick..  Your feelings could be different.  i would talk to your dr. about what you feel.  she what they say.  anxiety can trick our heads thinking we see stuff or feel things, but i woudn't worry to much.  i'm sure its normal.  Just to be on the safe side and to get a sense of comfort talk to your dr. about it.


Take care

to angest

it could all be from anxiety, if so it wont kill or even harm you

I suggest you write down everything that happens and take the list to doc and stress to him that the whole experience frightens you badly and that you are looking for an explanation, he will probably order some tests

after a panic attack, various stress hormones are pumped into the body and these might be responsible for what happens, BTW the panic attack comes first and the stress response later, an injection of adrenalin doesnt cause a panic attack nono

Hi!! Sorry that you didn't have your question answered the way you wanted before, I wonder if I missed it?

The beating in the abdomen.. I have the same thing.. but even when I'm not panicking.. if you lay on your back and look.. and place your hand on your abdomen... you can see and feel it beating. That's your heart actually, strangely enough. I don't know why but it just makes your abdomen beat.

I get the bad cramps and the gas and my hands and feet tend to tingle really bad, like almost when your foot falls asleep when you sit on your leg the wrong way for too long.. you know what I mean?

I checked my pulse rate when I noticed it too and it wasn't getting any faster and it was normal.

You're not dieing !!! *HUGS* We're all just worried that something is wrong... :)

I hope this helps.

Thanks for every replies!
Really I ve done all investigations before a year , all was normal. this feeling is very strange ,may be every body have such abdominal beating but they are not awaring of it ,because they are not anxious too much such us. after I had my heart investigations ,I ve told by cardiologist that every thing is normal,even I ve asked him about this abdominal beating and he answred me that its normal but still I'm not trusting him and thinking too much about it,might be this doubt is the one of the anxieties symptom.but what can I do its comming in such way and its annoying me too much and make me more anxious, some time 25 days in a month I have some thing like a rigid hard rock in my bowels and its pulsating with stomach problem and lots of gas, after gas passing I'm feeling little bit better,but when I'm thinking about it too much the bout of panic heating again and my condition bacome worse.might be its IBS or I don't know............
