pulsing feeling between my ribs, its ruining my life, help pls :(

Hello

I have been dealing with this for years, I have hand tubes everywhere, scans and my dna sequenced but no one can tell me why I feel a pulse in between my ribs every time my heart beats. It is ruining my life. Its worse when I eat. I feel it all of the time. I cannot focus on anything. Is this a sign of anxiety? If so, can anyone help me?

I am just about at my wits end, I have tried everything.

If I don't get an answer soon I am afraid I am going to do something permanent to end my suffering. :(

Help me pls.

I'm sorry that you are feeling like that. Please try and relax and take it easy. I know it is a battle and can really get the best out of us. As for me I have been suffering with anxiety for a while. This year has been a really bumpy roller coaster ride. I have been threw just about every symptom there can be. It's not fun and very draining. At times I would also get that pulse in between my ribs. When I ate seemed to get worse. Would drive me crazy and spike up my anxiety. I would start to think the what ifs. I would get so scared and then depressed. I had test done and all would be fine. I couldn't understand it. But one day my friend who is an ER trauma nurse and also suffers from anxiety for years told me that can happen because we are so tense when we have a panic attack. When our muscles relax it turns into a spasm. That we are so worried and our minds make it worse. We start to think its a tumer or its our heart and so on. She told me that when I got that feeling again to just tell myself it's ok it's my body defending itself from the anxiety. I have done that many times and it has really helped. It actually relaxes me and helps me calm down. I believe our mind is very powerful and creates things that don't exist. You can call your dr and explain to him how you feel and how it is affecting your daily life.They are there to help. I hope this can give you some peace and calm you down. Anxiety sucks but you can defeat it. We are here to cheer you on. Feel better soon :)

Please don't hurt yourself! Let your doctor know that this problem is making u feel like you want to hurt yourself. He/she may not realize how bad it is making u feel. With that said, a pulse can be felt in any part of the human body at different times, it just means u r alive and your blood is pumping! And that's a good thing. Sometimes when people are stressed or if certain needs are not being met, they can start to worry about health to much. This is true for myself & other ppl I know, but do seek professional help as I am not qualified to diagnose. But I do care! :)

I feel like my heart is quivering all the time and I have tremors. I know with my anxiety, I am in fight or flight mode most of the time. I see a great chiropractor and massage therapist. My chiro notices my sympathetic nervous system was out of whack so he adjusted me accordingly (he noticed before I said anything). It's been two days now and I do feel much better but the key to this kind of treatment is maintenance. If you can find good chiropractor that would be awesome. They do a lot of work for the nervous system.
