I had so many heart tests done and I still experience papiltations and occasional chest pain. The dr did ekg's, echo sonogram, holter monitor, event monitor and another holter and a stess test all was normal. Why do I feel this and that my heart will stop any minute?

Sometimes if you have had a heart surgery u just feel left over pain.its all in your mind actually. In some people this is called theoropy. But it's never sure,I had to be taken to the theoropist when I was eight.sometimes it can be brain problems such as,High active nerves in the area where you determined that your sick or hurt.But I don't really know this exactley.There is lots of explanations of this.

cat,

Yes, but only in your mind! The tests suggest your body is OK but do not be fooled. Your mind can make your healthy body sick. I had to fix my mind before I could fully fix my body. Get your head straight and your body will likely follow! Hey, it's just another body part. Treat your brain as aggressively as you would treat your heart!

Stress can make the heart rate crazy. My blood pressure was 251/121 and heart rate was at 100 bpm, then it dropped down, but I have angina, and a few other heart issues- try relaxing your mind, close your eyes, place yourself in a nice place, the beach, the mountians, in the bsth, light some candles, turn the music on, and just relax, give yourself some time. Maybe you are trying to hard, ease up. Plus some foods and beverages will make us feel that way too. Best wishes!

cat,

Hey, don't beat yourself up. It IS hard! You need to find forward-thinking professionals to help you (although this may likely be the HARDEST part). The trick is to be relentless and never give up until you find the professionals that can actually help you!

HH,
I do take a beta blocker and celexa. I had so many test done and thank God all was negative. Is this feeling something to be worried about?

Cat,

Felt this way for a long time after I first found I had heart disease. What worked for me was to take control and learn as much as I could. I got aggressive treatment by getting into the Track Your Plaque Program and even started working with the doc here as it is in the same town I live in.

I also sought agressive treatment for my "head." Therapy, drugs, you name it. It was so weird because I knew what was happening in my mind but was powerless to stop it - until now! Yeah, I still take a littel Xanax for sleeping and a beta blocker when palpitation weird me out (did this a lot earlier) but I understand it now and mostly ignore it.
