Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
It is safe to walk out of a room after focusing on the objects in the room
It does not mean you have heart trouble when you feel your heart racing
You cannot interfere with your heart beating
You cannot stop the beating even if you feel like its racing or beating faster than normal like if you take in a deep breath during the beating?
No, you can never stop it from beating
So the heart works separate from any nervous thoughts or deep breathing or body jerking movement from fear of it beating fast?
Yes, it works separately from all of those actions
Are you there?
yes just nervous
I thought about going to the ER earlier because my heart was beating so fast
There is no need to go to an ER unless you feel weak or like you are going to pass out or have chest pain
even the repeating touching objects cannot interfere with the heart from my OCD?
No, it cannot interfere with your heart
I felt tired but not weak and no chest pain
can the anxiety make you feel tired?
Then there is no need to go to an ER
should I just try to calm down and relax?
Yes, you should try to calm down and relax
any other advice you may have for me?
I think you should ask your doctor to refer you to a psychologist for counseling, I think it would help
I am seeing one now but it does not seem to be helping lately
Then you may need to try another one, ie. switch
okay thank you Dr Brims
so no need for ER now?
No need for an ER now
You're quite welcome
Thank you Dr Brims
In follow up to my fast heart pulse of 112 the clinic doctor today asked if I should have a CT scan of the lung with contrast to rule out a pulmonary embolism but found it highly unlikely. Do you think I should still get one? Also when I walked out of the exam room I looked back in to look at the wire wall hanging was that safe to do?
Well my my primary doctor has to approve it for insurance approval but do you think he will be mad that I got another opinion even the clinic doctor said it was highly unlikely I have an embolism
Thank you Dr my primary doctor decided I do not need the chest CT scan and thinks this may be heart burn or gerd associated with the cough. He does not seem too concerned with the elevated pulse rate nor does my psychiatrist who thinks I should keep taking the Abilify with the Remeron. I asked my doctor about the beta blocker but he decided not to and I am currently just taking Benicar HTC 20 mg. I am still puzzled on what to do? Does it seem like my Doctor is avoiding me regarding the high pulse situation?
I also am having a problem standing in kitchen work staring at sink window then when I move away I think it is going to affect something badly is this is harmless anxiety again and no connection to heart?
My psychiatrist has taken me off Paxil and I only am taking 10mg of Abilify my OCD makes me touch things repeatedly and I am using will power to try and stop. Is it safe not to keep touching something like the bar under the seat of the car to adjust the seat? There is no connection to heart and touching or gripping any of these objects?
