Anxiety and Heart Palpitations
Anxiety is a normal emotion. It’s your brain’s way of reacting to stress and potential threatening situation ahead.
It is part of life but if it gets out of control, it can become pathological and impair the quality of life. Most often fears occur in connection with heart disease, respiratory diseases or thyroid disorders. Depression or another mental illness, disorders of the nervous system and the brain can be the cause for it. Anxiety can trigger various symptoms such as heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, trembling, nausea, vomiting and sweating.
In the case of hyperthyroidism, the thyroid gland produces too many thyroid hormones, which are energy suppliers for many body cells, thereby accelerating the metabolic processes in the body. The body has too much energy, which leads to typical symptoms like shaking, heart rhythm disturbances, high blood pressure, nervousness, inner restlessness, sleep disturbances, diarrhoea, muscle weakness and pain, sweating, weight and hair loss, menstrual disorders. The autonomy of the thyroid gland (independent, uncontrolled hormone production) can lead to an overactive thyroid gland, and very often a malfunction of the immune system, called Graves’ disease, with its typical symptoms: protruding eyeballs, rapid heartbeat and goitre.
