I think even though it's frustrating we just have to keep plugging away at this.

Keep going to your doctor and telling them the things you are experiencing.

The low pulse rates of 48...give them an overall report of how things are going for you like you are doing here and let them decide what treatment should be pursued.

It is true I think that if you take the clonazepam it may help control your blood pressure when you're out. The anxiety and panic will make your other conditions worse and your other health conditions will also cause the anxiety to be more pronounced.

It's all connected together so we just have to try to stay as healthy as we can as a whole. Try to get good sleep, follow a healthy diet as much as possible. Eliminate stress wherever possible and just try to relax and cope.

I liked your soul searching comments. I think that is very brave and courageous of you to face your fears and accept that this is just where you're at for now.

You don't have real answers to many of your concerns or what it all means for you and there are others of us in that same boat.

We are all very complex individuals with different health issues going on with our bodies. The anxiety we have in common and we can understand how upsetting and stressful it is.

I would just encourage you to continue to pursue medical assistance at regular intervals so they can monitor your overall condition.

Thanks everyone for encouraging word I no I sound negative some times but you guys and gals keep me going another day when everything is so dark and I will keep going to the docs it's just if they listen heck my one doc told me to stop bc it was overwhelming her and that was enough for that day really wow my concerns overwhelm you what do you think they so to me but i'm going on again sorry. But I really do appreciate all you guys and gals do in these dark days of mine. Oh and the closer it gets to july 8 the day mt brother hung himself the more I need support. Just thought I just felt the need to share that with my friends on here

Oh one more thing is it possible to have anxiety or panic attack without high heart rate?

Yes AJ it is possible once everything is ruled out. You can experience other symptoms as well. Here are 2 websites I found that have helped me a lot. Of course this applies to you once you confirm that nothing is wrong. Anxiety and Panic sure can make us feel like something is wrong all the time and for long periods of time. But as I said once you rule out everything at the doctors then you can be assured that you are healthy.

OH and I just wanted to say to that yes 48 is low heartrate but a lot of athletes have that same slow heartrate and are perfectly healthy. But of course just to be safe have your tell your doctor about it. And if you are not happy with your doctor is it possible to get a second opinion from another doctor?? Then maybe that would really ease your mind. I have another doctor I can call besides my family doctor and what a big help it is to get 2 opinions especially when they tell me the same thing.

You're not crazy AJ.

The same thing is happening to us.

Blood tests come back okay but we still feel bad-scary bad.

It's hard to imagine we can keep going this way but we do.
