Does Your Heart Skip Beats During a Panic Attack?

Michelle Tason

Visitors: 1,626

Having a panic attack can cause your body to react with all kinds of freaky symptoms like tightness in the chest, racing heart, heart palpitations, choking feeling, sweating palms, and the psychological symptoms like an intense feeling of death or doom along with a feeling of unreality.

Even reading this you may be getting a little tense. How do I know this? Its because I too have panic attacks along with the skipping heart and many of the symptoms above.

Relax your not going to die. I've had these for 30 years now so you have nothing to worry about except they can be quite annoying. Ok they can be quite life disturbing and very frightening to experience. . . . .

What you need to know is that there are literally millions of other people who have experienced exactly what you have, a skipping heart beat during a panic attack. I don't care how “weird" you think your panic attack symptoms are. I guarantee somebody else has them too. Believe me I do lots of research on this stuff.

Just knowing that should put your mind at ease.

However I recommend that you work on preventing your panic attacks so that you will not have to endure these symptoms. They can have devastating long-term affects on the human mind.

Some of these panic attack symptoms may even be keeping you from doing the things that you enjoy. Like in my case I was always fixating on my next panic attack. What do you fixate on? Is it the fear of feeling your heart skipping beats again? Is it the fear of unreality during your panic attack?

I've suffered from severe panic attacks & heart beat skips for nearly 30 years. Stop living in fear like I was. Get my free tips that can stop your panic attacks forever. Go to my blog How To Stop Panic Attacks .
