I'm very scared. I know I have anxiety and sometimes I honestly feel like I have it under control and some days I cry all day because of how I feel. But I feel my heart skip a beat and I get very scared. I know this is normal for anxiety, but I can't get the scared feeling,out of my system.
Just now I was googling atrial fibrillation and I'm thinking to myself what it I have that! Then a heart attack or a stroke is a risk with this. I see a cardiologist next week but I'm scared of the results. I'm only 19 and I feel like I can't have fun anymore. I miss being a kid because I didn't worry bout all of this. Now that my dad had his stroke all I think about is the worse possible situation.
Yesterday I picked my mom up from work and when we came home I went straight to my room to check my blood pressure because I didn't check it all day. It was 122/78 heart rate at 74 but the little indicator showed that my heartbeat was irregular. It was a little hot when we came home and I was sitting in the Sun for her to get out. Anyways I saw this and immediately started to panic, I wasnt feeling fatigued or pain, or tired or dizzy, no shortness of breath, no weakness (usually symptoms of a fib) I waited a few minutes maybe 5 and did it again and it was in the 110s/60s I think heart rate still in the 70s but no irregular heart beat indication.
Then this morning I woke up fine and I watched tv in the living room waited for my mom and dad to get dressed for therapy, and sitting still and then I felt my heart skip a beat or something. Again I had no symptoms but I'm still afraid because in was reading about a fib. I'm afraid to workout because of this. I have a heart rate monitor thingy on my phone where you put your finger over the lens and the pulses look fine, but there's a heart thingy on it that shows the "heart beat" nd sometimes it skips a beat. Btw the app is called Instant Heart Rate by Azumio and idk if its accurate or not so idk if the results are correct
