I've been having anxiety and shortness of breath. But that isn't all, I also have been getting heartburn and I can feel my heart thumping and my heart rate increases for no reason often. I get random pains in my chest and abdomen, along with using the bathroom less often. I also noticed a bulge on the back of my neck. I am only 19 and my anxiety keeps making me think I am having a heart attack, can someone please help me find out what this is?
I read your question and i understand your concern. Anxiety and acid reflux may be together causing these discomforts . One needs anxiolytic, psychotherapy sessions and other needs diet lifestyle adjustments, small frequent meals and regular exercise. Visit our GERD health center for further guidance.
