Oh my goodness, as far as anxiety symptoms go, I am pretty much okay, well not okay, but accepting with most of them, except for SKIPPED HEART BEATS. I have gone to the ER a couple of times because of this. They have done EKGs and have reassured me that they are not heart attack. I know that it is nothing more serious than a skipped heart beat and that it is supposed to be uncomfortable, and it is because of stress and anxiety, but every time I feel it, it seriously freaks me out. Like if Iam sitting down, and out of nowhere i just get it, I literally jump up and then I feel a surge of panic. Sometimes I catch myself and I am able to calm myself down, often it will trigger my anxiety attack which builds up to panic attack if I don't calm myself down. Anyone else feel this way??
