  • I think panic attacks but u should prolly have a check up and mention the symptoms. panic attacks can feel like a heart attack which of course makes u panic more. try self talking,sa to yoursel"Ok this has happened before and it always passes.I'm ok."Also see if u can tell when u notice them coming on. Feel better hon.

  • Be sure you are drinking enough water. When I don't, I get heart palps and a fast beat and then I get anxiety...which gives me pain in my chest.

  • I feel like that quite often myself and it' scary as hell!!! Don't try to fight it when it happens..that's the WORST thing that you can do. Just kinda let it wash over you and think to yourself "I know what this is, it's happened before and I am fine." If you get too concerned, go to see your Dr for a checkup. I ended up doing that and I was totally fine.
