Customer Question
Just trying to look...

Just trying to look into my issues. Whether they are caused in regards ***** ***** panic attack disorder or an actual heart issue. My Name is ***** *****.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Well I have been diagnosed with panic attack disorder. And suffer from random feelings of tingling or chest tightness. I am very physical for my job as I teach jiu jitsu so i've thought of things like costocontritis as the issue in some cases. Sometimes it feels like I have a heart skip a beat or something to that effect. Then usually followed by a panic or anxious attack and elevated Blood PRessure. I check my blood pressure and sometimes it is on the low side of normal. Others it's elevated but that's generally when i'm experiencing a panic attack or after one.

Hello,

Well these can be cardiac arrhythmia which are usually harmless at your young age.

It's common to have fluctuation in blood pressure and heart rate when you are doing more physical activity and during panic attack also.

Chances of heart disease are very less in your case.

If your heart rate and blood pressure persist high even after taking proper rest then EKG,ambulatory blood pressure should be done as a precautionary measure.

Otherwise we consider your symptoms normal.

Try deep breathing exercises and hydrate yourself with Oral rehydration solution to prevent dehydration.

Eat light meals before physical work.

And take short breaks of rest also.

Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.
Please to not forget a positive rating.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
