I've had a fast heart rate along with shortness of breath (although I can work past that) since exams 3 months ago. I've seen a chiropractor, a doctor and a cranialsacrel therapist and none have been able to help much, so the doctor summed it up to anxiety. I'm not an anxious person and do not need relaxation exercises, as most of the time i'm very relaxed. I haven't had an anxiety attack since the one that started it all, so i'm thinking that the reason my heartbeat won't slow down is because of a chemical reaction. Is there anything I can do to help my heartrate go down safely?
Just for reference, my heartbeat is around 76bpm sitting down and does way up to 150-180bpm going up stairs. Is this just an out-of-shape thing? I don't feel out of shape. I don't look it either, as i'm very thin (fast metabolism).
