How old is your boyfriend? Such symptoms could be signs of heart disease.
I am not a Dr but what it sounds like to me is a panic attack samesymptoms almost that i had the racing heart my hands and feet went tingly i went out of here by ambulance thinking i was having a heart attack but it was only panic attack and Whenn I talked to the dr they did an ekg which came back normal but she said stress can hit you at n e point in time, panic attacks can happen even when u dont feel stressed but the tingling sensations and all that is normal along with the anxiety and panic attacks.Tell him to get checked out just to rule out anything else but his symptoms are like wht i expierenced. They gave me valium and when i feel an attack coming on i take one and it calms me because i refuse to take something everyday....GoodLuck to you trying to get him to go to the dr I cant get my boyfriend to go either guess its a man thing lol If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask everyone on here is very helpful!
Your BF definitely needs to have his symptoms checked out, preferrably by a cardiologist.
For his sake I hope it's nothing, but you might want to ask him if he thinks it's "pointless" to get off the couch and possibly save his life.
Try making your boyfriend feel like you need your piece of mind. Obviously it is worrying you as much as him. Anything that could endanger his health is a threat to you. I would never rule out a physical problem without a full work-up with his doctor. Yes panic attacks can cause these symptoms but never assume anything.
