Anything's possible: You don't mention your age, barbara511911, but it's possible that your fast heart rate is precipitating angina, especially if you have cardiac risk factors and are not as young as you used to be. Why not have a talk with your primary care doctor about these worrisome symptoms? This would be a terrific reason for doing a stress test!

It could either one: Of them, but i presume it is heart related and have it checked then if not we are safe we could with the treatment of anxiety.Thanks.
