Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
Do you have any history of irregular beats or do you feel any kind of skipped beats?
Have you taken any ECG? If so, will you be able to share it?
Any history of shortness of breath or chest pain? What is your height and weight? Also, what is your age?
Please reply and I will get back to you.
Patient replied :
I am 32 year old. I am 1,74 meters tall and I weight 79 kg.
I don't have any history, I don't feel any kind of skipped beats. I never experienced shortness of breath. However, occasionally I feel like my chest hurts, but rather in a mild way.
I had an EEG 5 years old patientago, I don't remember why but it was not because I was accusing heart issues. I obviously don't have it.
I think I have always been like this (including being anxious). It is only by accident that I discovered that my pulse is actually so high.
My generalist examined me two days ago. Besides the obvious tachycardia, I don't remember him making any other remarks.
Tachycardia is a common manifestation of the anxiety and stress.
Since you have no other associated cardiac symptoms, and the ECG was normal, there is no cause to worry.
I would advise you to repeat the ECG, since the last time was 5 years old patientback, and follow up with me.
About anxiety, you can meet a psychologist who can suggest some calming techniques like yoga, meditation, e.t.c, or you can go for the CBT therapy which also helps in reducing the stress levels. Among medication, Alprazolam ( 0.25-0.5 mg ) can be taken once daily, which reduces the anxiety.
