Having some heart palpitations right now--just stopped, trying to relax, loosened my pants and sitting up straight and trying to walk around a bit. This is the first time thishas happened since going on Paxil 3 months ago. When the gentle little palps come I beleive i handle them quite well on the axil but when they come is succession and feel like they are deep I think that this has happened before and I haven't died yet but then I think but there's always a first time eyes --just venting and breathing--trying to calm down--don't think I'll panic altho did when I realized what was happening. I got up and rushed to thedoor and my shoes devising where I'd go, which neighbor friend, got a quick glance out the window and sorta wondered if I could drive in this new (1 hour old) snow storm to get to the hospital if I needed to, who would pick up the kids at school, man I feel weird/has it stopped yet/am I going to be ok--all that at once going on in my head.
Ok--seems ok now.
Wobbly arms tho and cold from sweatiness.
should be fine but now I'm going to keep assessing myself and those darn palps-crap!

Yup, made it through and that was it for the day but the big problem is I never know that's all for sure. Thirty seconds that ruined my event free streak of months. Had that nervious wobbly body after the clench feeling for the rest of the day/night.
I may have been catching a cold that set it off but don't know for sure either. had a few palps over the weekend I braced myself for or even grabbed at my chest but nothing to be truely bothersome but I just can't stand being so nervous after an event like that. Despite my want to be strong and brave and want to laugh it off--yeah right!
Thanks ladies.

starting paxil may be the cause but by now, the paxil should be working and not causing palps, however if the paxil isnt working, it may cause palps

so is it working for your anxiety, you should be able to judge.....a typical dose range is 20 to 50, I would be asking doc about upping the dose if not helping now, or maybe swapping to another antidepressant med

once doc has assured you that the palps arent important, they are best accepted and ignored
