I have the same thing, my heart races and I can not breath very well and they keep telling me it is not my heart or my lungs but I am having a hard time believing that. I do not sleep as I am scared and at the end of my rope. I think about just ending it and not suffer anymore.
I hope you feel better though

im a 22yr old male and i am on zoloft for panic attacks and anxiety. i notice the racing heart rate thing more then anything... even when i dnt seem to b having an attack. the doc says im healthy and my heart is fine so the only thing that i can link the racing heart rate to is my condition
  best of luck

i would have full blow panic attacks, if i was blocked at somewhere ( traffic or train...)
However, most time i am ok if i was not at that situation.
today, i haven't had panic attack, but still feel shortness of breath and racing heart, what is that?

thank you for your help

Both symptoms you describe can be caused by anxiety, but are usually more indicative of a "panic attack".

Without any other information, that's all I can give you.
