hi, yea go to the doctor but plz dont be scrared! not ever! ok! even if your not stressed and these feeling/symtoms are goin on! your body is tellin you to chill and relax! my body did for almost 5 months! i did as little as possible due to heart papitations and pain all over! numbness all of it and im sooo much better and ya know wat! it all starts from thinking!!!! you have to find a way to think as plane ans normal as possible drop all those bad thinking habbits and unrealistic thoughts! GO SEE A DOCTOR ok dont wait thell run some test and talk to you.i think hospital doctors are the best to talk to wen you feeling your smytoms may be more! then wat hes says but trust in him or her ok! drink water ALOT eat good TAKES VITAMIN PILLS ok!!! DO IT!!! time will go by and practice breathing ok!!

Meltd0wn...that was tad bit harsh, don't you think. It's people like you that give people bad names. Shut your mouth and let her live her life. If she is happy, it doesn't matter what you or nobody else has to say. But as for you Jodie 16..I know what you are going through. I'm fixing to turn 18 and have had stuff like that going on. It's scary, and you do think you are going to die. I think mine is actually stress and anxiety though. Good luck with everything dear!

mrshurst11 hello and welcome..i suffer from anxiety and 48 yrs old and your symptoms do sound like anxiety related as i suffer these horrible feelings and on medication for chest pain..i too worried it was my heart but its due to build up of acid reflux and thats what causes the pressure pain in the chest..i wake sometimes out of a sleep feeling the need to breath at it feels irregular and feel i am missing heartbeats but this is just the palpatations you experience..
if you are worried see your doctor and try relaxation to help your breathing as this can easily turn to a panic attack..
my medication and stress of a prolapsed disc help me get my symptoms diagnosed and mild anti depressants are good..
i hope this eases your mind in some way and its nothing to worry about when under control.
its a very fightening experience and especially in younger people i know i got a fright so goodness knows how it feels for the younger generation..
i hope this explanation to you helps jodie also and wish you both the best of luck..
ioka.

Hey I'm not exactly sure what heart flutters are but I suffer from anxiety and even when I'm not nervous I'll feel this weird feeling like I'm gasping for air for a secnd and get that weird feeling in my chest and throat as if I'm excited but I'm not. Is that a chest flutter? And if so, I started getting them 2 days ago when I got this congestion in my chest.

Heart Flutters
Heart flutters can be caused by a heart murmur or mitral valve prolapse. MVP is rarely serious. Your doctor can find out if you have it by giving you an ultrasound of the heart. An EKG will NOT always find it.
