When I first got fibro many years ago, I had a racing heart and a constant throbbing temple headache (among the many other symptoms of fibro) for a couple years straight. It was ALWAYS there. It was so bad, that I felt like I could vomit at any time. Back then, I thought it was anxiety, but how does someone have anxiety all the time? I would describe it as the fight or flight response that someone feels when they are in actual danger-except it was a constant and of course there was no danger. My allergy doctor at the time put me on Attenolol that I believe is a high blood pressure drug, which worked very well at getting rid of my symptoms. Every once in a while though, for example if I'm very busy at work, it can take many hours for my heart to slow down and I feel like I cannot physicaly take a deep breath to even try to relax. Has anyone else had a constant headache and racing heart for no reason? I'm glad to have attenolol otherwise I don't think I could function, but I've always wondered what is going on to cause this. I have alot of pain in the muscles of my chest and ribs that may cause heart palpitation, shortness of breath or maybe it's just a central nervous system gone crazy??? Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks for any input!
