ms_mod - Thanks for looking out for everyone. Thank you for also not closing this post. I was afraid you would think it was another one about POTS, but I was just trying to share an experience to try to help someone else. I know that when anxiety sufferers (especially those with health anxiety) hear about an illness our minds just start running. The same thing happened to me last week and when I posted about it I guess I got some other people going too...which I didn't mean to do and I felt really bad about it. Anyway - thanks again for your concern!

Boxer - Yes, I am feeling a little bit better today. I have actually been pretty good about keeping my fingers away from my wrists and my neck. I'll try to keep the pulse checking to a minimum. It does nothing good for me when I do that. I figure if I am sitting here with my eyes open my heart is doing what it is supposed to be doing. You should try the beta blockers again. Just start at a real low dose. It will probably help you. Wanna try to quit the cancer sticks with me this weekend?

Michelle - I have never taken Zoloft so I have no idea if that is causing your congestion issues. If it keeps up, though, you should probably put a call in to your doctor. I am 31, not married (yet) and no kids (hopefully soon). It sounds like you have your fair share of stress. 9 miscarriages? That must have been a trying time. I tested positive for lupus anticoagulant so I will be at a high risk of miscarriages if I ever do get pregnant. I've already been told I will have to have daily heparin injections. You are a wonderful person to help those kids and try to get them into a better situation. I'm sure that isn't easy to deal with. I believe Zoloft is an anti-depressant, right? I think that those can actually cause more anxiety when first starting them. Do you have any anti-anxiety meds to take until the Zoloft kicks in? I don't know too much about those medicines, so I may be wrong. I'm assuming since you have already talked to your doc about beta blockers that you have had your heart checked out and they can't find anything wrong? Seems that is the case with most of us.

Well ladies I hope everyone can get some rest tonight and we can all feel better tomorrow. I'll be thinking about you!
