I am 23 female. When I am anxious my heart rate seems to drop to around 40 beats/minute. This past year and a half I have been unable to exercise or work full time due to this ongoing health problem. My other symptoms are: lightheaded, weak legs, abnormal period, tired, similar to hypothyroid of which I do not have. I have had blood work, endoscopy, and a colonoscopy--all okay. I do have an ovarian cyst and mitral valve regurgitation. Could my symptoms be related to either? Doctors don't seem to take it serious because I don't look sick, however, I am not living life do to these things. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe point me in a direction?
