Been up since 4:30 am, at work since 7:30 am. Heart is racing and feel like I’m short of breath. Am I having anxiety or a heart attack? Not amount of deep breathing is helping ...Any ideas?

Likely just anxiety, but if you are truly worried it would not hurt to see a doctor. No job is worth your health.

Agreed that its most likely anxiety but go to doctor if you’d like to be on the safe side and rule out all possible diagnoses

Happens to me. Do you drink a lot of coffee? Caffeine exasperates the feeling.

Happy to report (I guess?) that it was just anxiety and not a heart attack. Strange to have this appear later in life ...never experienced anything beyond butterflies before. This was a whole new level. And yes, I think I probably also had too much coffee (all in prep for a “big” meeting)

Phew! glad that’s what it was.
