Avatar n tn Hey, sorry, I already posted this under the medical community field but I wanted to ask a doctor about this, I guess I'll copy/paste it below: Sooo. I'm a teen who went on vacation and had "panic attacks," at least, to my knowledge. They were just tremendous feelings of fear that I've never felt before, and came out of nowhere. I really thought my life was over and that I was going crazy. I froze up the first time, my heart was beating fast, and felt horribly low.

Avatar n tn Sooo. I'm a teen who went on vacation and had "panic attacks," at least, to my knowledge. They were just tremendous feelings of fear that I've never felt before, and came out of nowhere. I really thought my life was over and that I was going crazy. I froze up the first time, my heart was beating fast, and felt horribly low. THIS was all three months ago, during the month of August, and occurred recurrently, 10 times max, within four weeks.
Avatar n tn What are the main causes of heart attacks ? I thought the only way you could get one is from blocked arteries? Can Cardoimyopathy cause one also ,if theEf% is too low? Thanks for information and help.
Avatar m tn I am a 48 year old white male, and I have already had a total of 5 heart attacks (all within the last 5 tears). At first my doctoer thought it was due to my low HDL, as it has been lower that 28 for the last 5 years. But after my last attack, about 3 months ago, the doctors are now thinking that my body is trying to reject the 3 stents the have pkaced in me. This last attack was pretty serious, and we are planning to have a defibri;ator implanted later this month.

Avatar f tn I got an alert on my email that paxil can cause heart disease. I have been on paxil for 8 years and have started having some problems with my heart. I take 30 milligrams a day. If anyone knows the answer to my question I appreciate hearing from you.
Avatar f tn Panic attacks are often confused with heart attacks and is common for first time sufferers to seek inmediate medical attention, which is understandable and required in order to discount potential heart and circulatory issues. When first diagnosed, the most usual course of treatment is a combination of psychological and pharmacological therapy (antidepresants and antianxiety meds such as , prozac, diazepam and Xanax).

Avatar n tn The drs are saying the rapid heart rate, difficulty breathing is related to mental illnes such as depression or anxiety attacks. I even had one Dr. (a pulmonologist tell me that the problem is me, that I am depressed and stressed causing her to have theses symptoms) We did a stress test, which she could not complete due to high heart rate. She didnt even get past the fast walk section.

Avatar n tn To start, at 27 years of age and being a female you are at extremely low risk of having coronary artery disease (blockages in the arteries that causes heart attacks). Acid reflux can cause this but I don't recommend just ending it there..I think you need to have a discussion with your primary physician about all of your symptoms and consider other possibilities: depression, panic attacks.

Avatar m tn today after lunch with the girls, I got a voicemail from someone threatening to sue me. Of course, I was shocked, stressed, depressed. Felt like a **** magnet - cried and cried and cried. I haven't cried like that since... since my brother passed away - ok, that crying was worse. But I haven't cried continuously as I did today - took an anti sychotic to destress me, slept most of the later afternoon and evening.

Avatar n tn My questions and concerns are how can a heart murmur effect, bring about symptoms of depression? Is a heart murmur relavant? Thank you for your time and response. Dear Debbie, The link between the heart and the emotions has been described for thousands of years in religious writings and ancient medical texts. Increasing attention has been paid to the interaction of psychiatric disorders, cardiac symptoms (chest pain and tachycardia ), and cardiac disease.

178107 tn?1315947630 I am new here and I am suffering from chromic pain and severe depressive disorder. I had never really had a PA until this past weekend when My husband took me to the ER with chest pains. I am 46 and I couldn't believe that I was having a heart attack. After being admitted and having several test ran I was told that my pain was caused by anxiety and PA. Thank God it wasn't a heart attack, but now how do I deal with this?
Avatar m tn So many with depression, panic attacks, anxiety, suicidal thoughts. dizziness.. in these days and age, our population has had foods that are altered, non nutritive, and this is how people unknowingly get insufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals that should come from the food we eat. Depression and anxiety could easily come from lack of Magnesium. By increasing Magnesium in your body, your depressive and suicidal ideation should subside and be replaced with relaxed body and mind.
Avatar f tn I noticed at night when I lay down to sleep, I start to relax and my heart starts to palpitate fast and causes me to get a bit paranoid about my heart health. When this happens I have a hard time falling asleep because my heart is racing and therefore takes me a few hours to sleep. I have been suffering from this on and off for close to a year. I have been on medications for depression and anxiety but didnt help me.
Avatar n tn You want to rule out heart causes first before settling on panic attacks or anxiety as the cause of your symptoms. A simple test to consider would be a stress test, which can evaluate for cardiac causes of chest pain - this can be done with an echocardiogram for better clarity. If this test is negative, then you can be better assured that the heart is not the culprit, and proceed towards optimizing anxiety treatment. This can be discussed with your personal physician.
