    I have to get an MRI next month to be sure, but I finally saw an ortho today for my knee pain and she thinks I might have torn my meniscus. FMLLLLL.

    Any goodness you can send our way would be appreciated. I've been having some tachycardia stuff going on for the past month or so. I had an EKG done at the doctor's office, an echocardiogram this morning and have a calcium score test thing at 5 today. They're checking everything because of family history.

    It's usually paired with a panic attack so hopefully it's all anxiety related but I just wanted some peace of mind. I don't know if the tachycardia causes a panic attack or if I'm just having panic attacks and the rapid heart rate is a result of that. It feels very "fight or flight." My brain has just been on an awful feedback loop for awhile and I'm finally ready to actually take anxiety medication instead of just staring at the bottle thinking "I should probably take those" but being too anxious to do it. Brain, why don't you just function correctly!?!?!

    That sounds incredibly stressful (which of course doesn't make these kinds of symptoms any better!!!). Big hugs and healing thoughts to you. I hope they can figure things out quickly and reassure you that everything is OK <3

    I get heart palpitations when I’m super anxious, too. Meds have helped a lot. Hopefully yours is just stress, and you find some good solutions. <3

    Thank you guys. I'm trying to stay busy and not freak out about it because I'm like 98% sure it's anxiety related, I do have a heart murmur that they heard last time I was in the office but my doctor didn't seem too concerned about it.

    They just called, my echo, ekg and calcium tests were all good!!! The halter monitor thing I did a few weeks ago was mostly normal, the nurse did mention a note that said there was some arrhythmia but I'm guessing that was in conjunction with an anxiety episode.

    I have an appointment tomorrow to discuss anxiety meds. Thank you all for your kind wishes <3<3<3
