Specializes in Cardiology

obtain an ambulatory 24 hour EKG monitor and be sure your symptoms are not due to a cardiac arrhythmia or inappropriate sinus tachycardia, most of which are treatable. Obtain a thyroid test as well. If your symptoms are due to anxiety, listen to them and use biofeedback to begin to control your heart rate and contraction force.

Specializes in Clinical Psychology

Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy to diagnose these multiple symptoms and formulate a treatment plan which may include medication prescribed by a Psychiatrist. Also, please have a complete physical exam to determine if some of your symptoms are due to a physical problem.
