      Well, I hope you don't have to go to the ER often. I feel like for the majority of people, going to the ER (or even urgent care) is nerve wracking and causes a ton of anxiety. The only things I can suggest are taking deep, long breaths, and trying to find an area where you can have your own space (even if it is outside, you know they're not calling your name anytime soon). I hope this helps some.

      I have been to the ER for a racing heart more times then I can count. I need to make sure I am always hydrated and don’t over eat. When my heart rate is racing I ask myself “would I rather be at home or in an ER where they are gonna stick me with needles and ignore me for 4 hours?” I tell myself my heart will go back to normal in 3 hours. They did give me some beta blockers but I am afraid to take them. My mom died of a heart attack and my dad has had like 4 heart attacks and 8 stints and a quadruple bypass. I am super paranoid about heart issues. Also watch out for certain foods that can trigger heart palpitations. It’s different for everyone. I watch my heart rate with my Apple Watch like a hawk. If it gets a bit high then I’ll sit down a little and pound some water.
