Anxiety?: Anxiety can cause heart palpitations, pounding heartbeat and can even be a risk for coronary (heart) artery disease. The scenario is deserving of a cardiac work up. The tingling can be explained by rapid breathing associated with anxiety. Shortness of breath could be related, or could be related to heart disease or other issues. Identifying the problems will be step one, but relief is possible
