I started having tinnitus, costochondritus, heart-pounding, tachycardia, nausea, weight-loss, unrealism, etc and panic attacks and
became agoraphobic. Most symptoms
subsided after 5-6 months. I became more active, enjoyed life, was planning for the future (post-doc) and was under the impression that I was recovering. However, last June I woke up one morning with a completely irregular heartbeat. It scared the hell out of me.
