Thank you Dr. Arun also could it have been that as I was leaning over to touch the car belt buckle and strap that my heart was beating faster because I was leaning over? So there is no way heart can be affected aside from beating fast from anxiety? thank you for helping me
Thank you again Dr. and just one more relation to the OCD no matter how many times you touch something or stop touching it even though heart is beating fast it does not affect the heart or the tightening of the diaphram or chest muscles from tension will not harm the heart as well?
today my OCD acted up and it seemed like I kept clenching my left fist to feel my pulse during certain movements like picking up something or touching an object. My heart was racing after some pizza after dinner and my OCD of touching steering wheel kicked in. It felt like my heart was beating in my throat. were any of these anything to worry about or was it just anxiety and harmless to heart function? thank you Dr.
thank you dr. even though the heart was beating very fast it still won't harm heart?
Today I was shopping in aisle and I kept hyperfocusing on a sign that said spices above the shelving. I became scared and nervous if I look away it will hurt my heart so I turned my back to the sign and walked away from it and looked back one more time. However I was worried this would somehow affect my heart function? So hyperfocusing on a sign then turning away cause any harm to heart or is it just my anxiety?
One more question regarding the hyperfocusing I forgot to ask Dr. If you are viewing a program on TV screen and subtitle underneath it that I am staring at from OCD goes off screen does that cause any fluctuation in heart beating or is it just a nerve from anxiety?
so the nerve in my left side of my neck just tensed even though heart was beating fast I appreciate you helping me Doctor it puts my mind at ease
