I suffered anxiety and panic attacks 10 yrs ago. Had ALL the tests done and all was fine. Now 10 yrs later, dealing with stress, back to anxiety and severe panic attacks. My blood pressure was up, they put me on one med but didnt help with the heart rate. I had 6 EKG's an echo and they said it was sinus tacycardia. I was in ER once and my heart rate went up to 160 and stayed hovering at 120, yes I was panicking. But on a normal basis my heart rate would stay at 100-110. I was put of Toprol XL and givin Xanax which I use when needed. My heart rate in the morning is always in the 90's and seems to slow down around evening on the Toprol XL. Wen to the Dr's and my heart rate was 107, now they want me to see a cardiologist. I am nervous. Everyone tells me this is all my anxiety and panic. I feel panic and anxious for even simple things. I am affraid to go anywhere alone or be alone. Should I be reassured that the EKG's and echo were fine and just accept the fast heart rate as anxiety?
Oh and I have to confess that I take my blood pressure and heart rate like 15-20 times a day. Not sure if that can contribute to the hear rate issue.
Can anyone relate? Has anyone experienced this simular issue?
I am in the same situation right now. My blood pressure is high for the first time in my life, but they think it is just the anxiety. I am scheduled for an echo on the 19th becuase I do have Mitral Valve Prolapse, so they want to be sure. One thing I don't do is constantly check my blood pressure. Every time someone comes near me with a bp cuff, it goes out of control. So, to keep my sanity, I have not had it checked for one week. You might want to try not to take your bp, you might be surprised and it may go down.

I am still in a bit of a panic. They had to put me on Celexa and Ativan just to keep me somewhat sane while I am going through testing.....

Good luck, and I am here to talk if you need to.
