Anxiety: Anxiety reaction may well be the cause of your symptoms if hyperthyroidism as well as organic heart disease has been ruled out by your physician and/or cardiologist. Consultation with a psychiatrist for stress management therapy is recommended as treatment for chronic anxiety state. Medication may also be prescribed for a short period.
