Yes I know exactly what you have. It is a walking phobia….anxiety…….lol we have all heard the catchall diagnosis of anxiety. I would suggest a heart rate monitor watch. Until I realized that I indeed had tachycardia I never recognized why everything has always been so hard for me. I will tell you my heart rate during a 2.5mph walk on tread mill will shoot as high as 180-195 sitting will lower it quite a bit but takes time. So check you pulse rate before,during and after. You may find that it is high after eating, taking a shower or pretty much any physical exertion.
20 years is a long run, stay strong.
LOL! I know, the cardiologist actually said my veins were distended because I am thin! What a joke. Yes, my veins are distended, I am SOB (short of breath), have a tachycardia, my body is burning up, and my feet are so hot and red that I have to put ice packs on them – BECAUSE I AM THIN! What a joke.
I guess we’ve all been there. Thanks for your input 🙂
