Emily: it sounds like you are HYPERVENTILATING (Breathing too fast) which makes you feel breathless and will make you more anxious (Racing Heart) Try breathing into a paper bag...that somtimes helps and speak with the Helath Care Provider who ordered the EKG about some anti-anxiety medication and/or referral to a behavioral PSYCHOLOGIST for some more "lasting" help! Good Luck Dr z

Acute Anxiety: I understand your distress of breathless and heart racing. Feel good about your good decision to see the Physician and having ECG. Believe in good functioning of your Lungs and Heart as your ECG is normal. Do not feel helpless, do not be victim of your symptoms Believe in Healing Powers of your body, present for 25 years of your life. See a Psychiatrist for Therapy and Cardiologist for follow up
