Does anyone else feel a random strong and frightening spasm in the chest area that makes your heart beat very strongly for like 5 seconds? My breathing and throat also “shake” when this happens. I’ve been getting those at random for the past 3 months, I also get sharp pains in the middle of my chest.

      I have POTS too and that happens to me if I start to panic or if I get my heart going too much. My doctor basically said to try and take it easy and gave me some anxiety meds.

      @BreadLoaf I also have POTS, could that be combining with the anxiety and causing this? It’s so uncomfortable and makes me sick with fear that it’s my heart failing or something, the tests they’ve done on me haven’t found anything aside from the POTS.

      Yes! It’s really scary.
