Arguments, Anxiety

Apr 11, 2013 - 0 comments

I had a small palp after standing from lying down propping myself up on my elbow on my right side.  For the first time I began to suspect chest and back compression as a culprit in these palps.

My follow up appointment with a doctor post-emergency room was screwed up by the clinic I was supposed to go to getting the time wrong, after a vey stressful drive downtown and hard time parking, run to the clinic to try to get there on time, etc.  I was horribly dissapointed and then had more argeuments with my partner. My heart still held steady until I got home and layed down on my back to rest.  It gave one hard palpitation that was almost painful.  I was devastated that the medical community could let me down at a time like this.  I switched clinics.

I recognized that my anxiety was getting overwhelming so I took instead of Xanex a small amount of Valerian powder in water.  That seemed to do it's job very well and dispelled my anxiety.  Unfortunately I only got 6 hours of sleep due to being woken up by neighbor's dogs barking, traffic sounds and kids screaming outside my window.  I spent the next day searching for shutters for the window.

prescription



This day I had a very large palpitation and I was just DONE with this.  I resolved to fight this until it was cured.  It had got worse instead of better although I had cut out all chocolate, processed foods, white flour and other dietary "bad guys" since January.  I lost 15 lbs but it didn't stop the palps, so I eliminated being overweight as a possible reason why I was getting palps and also junk food.  I ended up going to a sliding scale clinic and having an EKG done.  It was administered very close to a flourescent light which gave me an anxiety attack and a huge series of palps.  I was sent to the Emergency Room where 2 more EKGs were done which showed nothing.  It was found that my thyroid hormone was perfect, right in the middle of normal, so thyroid was ruled out as a cause.  And my blood pressure was also perfect (probably a result of my great diet since January) so hypertention was ruled out as a cause.  It was determined that I had anxiety and I was given a prescription for Xanex, but I use Valerian root sparingly on an as-needed basis so I never filled that prescription.

Allergies



I had major palps on this day and I had flowering plants and trees in my house, I also had very clogged nose and sore throat and deep itching on my arms and legs so bad that I had scratched myself up.  I got rid of all the plants in my house by giving them away.  My allergy symptoms went away and I was hoping that this was the end of the palps.

I had allergy symptoms to trees that had flowered in my house and I had a palp.  I suspected allergies to these particular trees so I gave them away, but kept about 10 other plants with flowers thinking that their pollen would not be enough to trigger my symptoms.  I didn't want to get rid of beautiful plants.
