I'm a 24 year old male (Indian). I experience symptoms such as breathlessness, pounding feel (in the chest), etc. when I get anxious (such as being involved in a tense situation) or excited (such as attempting to sing in a party, getting to the stage to receive an award, etc.). Once I calm down, these symptoms disappear and they generally don't last for more than 2 - 3 mins. Sometimes I feel like being unable to breathe for a fraction of a second but get normal after that. I have experienced these symptoms several times over the last 8 years or so. I also experienced palpitation once in Dec 2005 (lasted for about 15 mins) and once more recently in July 2010 (lasted for an hour). For long, I thought I was perhaps suffering from a heart problem (I never met a doctor though), but off late, I learnt on the net that there's something called an anxiety disorder whose symptoms are similar to cardiac symptoms. That had me wondering if I too could be sufferring from an anxiety disorder. I want to meet a doctor to get myself checked up. But I fear that as I enter the doctor's room and start explaining my symptoms, I might get tense and start experiencing breathlessness, palpitation, etc. The whole thought of experiencing breathlessness or palpitation is filling me with a sense of fear and I am not able to get myself to visit a doctor. Can you please guide me as to how I can address these fears and meet the doctor with confidence?
