  • I'm 20 years old and i suffer from health anxiety, i can tell you that, yes, some people's hearts skip beats, i have talked to mulitiple people at work about panic attacks and anxiety and they said the same thing, Also, I have been seen to by many doctors, 3 at my local GPs office and 4 at the A&E and they told me the same thing. With your case I believe that it is indeed all in your mind, and to help you find your peace of mind you have to face your fear, which is what I need to do too. Currently, I have a free starter pack about anxiety and it helps me when I panic, it is called the Linden Method, sign up and they send you a DVD and you can get newsletters every so often to help you. I still suffer from Panic attacks but when i have one, I pop the DVD in, watch as many times as I can until I feel better about myself, you have to really listen., I recommend this rather than medications, medications should always be a last resort. the Linden Method can help you if you are willing to help yourself.
