    Heart health and anxiety?

    Can anxiety feel like you have heart issues? I’ve done multiple EKG’s in the past, with most of them reading “normal”. But a couple of them read “abnormal LVH”. I’ve done a little research, and what I gained was that LVH is basically a enlarged valve. I followed up and did a ultrasound of my heart, and everything came back as normal. A couple things worry me though. 1- my blood pressure sometimes spikes to 140/73. I know the bottom number is good, but the top number is not. However I am always extremely....

    I was diagnosed at 16 with mitral valve prolapse, after becoming pregnant and having what I would call a panic attack. I had all kinds of test ran to determine this diagnosis. At age 26 I was diagnosed with adhd and started taking adderall xr 15mg then on to 30mg once daily. I'm now 34 and think some of my issues maybe due to adderall use for so long. Over the years I would avoid caffeine because it would give me palpations and was always tired. Adderall has helped me in so many ways. In the....
