    When I get panic attacks while I’m in bed and listening to my heart race – I can’t help but think to myself this can’t good for my heart. I had read somewhere within these interwebs that anxiety can be linked to heart disease. Is this true or is this just a myth??

    Hi Jill,

    I just read the post today – thank you for putting that out there! After my vacation, I’d like to go back to my GP for a physical as it’s been more 10+ years since I had my last one. It’s good to know that a racing heart won’t trigger heart disease and the last ECG I had came back perfectly normal; so, I can take comfort in the fact that my heart is okee dokee and I can concentrate on working on my anxiety levels.

    Thanks so much!

    2 years ago I was diagnosed with “Accute Panic Disorder” a general anziety disorder that causes frequent panic attacks. After some diet and exercise adjustments, I was able to manage them a lot better. Now, I am getting married in a week and its getting pretty bad again. I am thinking about going back on some kind of baseline med, but everything I have ever taken had severe sexual side effects. Does anyone know of a natural substitute that doesnt do that?
