So does this heartbeat anxiety go away. I've smoked for the past 3 years and ever since stopping 58 days ago it's come and gone and the anxiety is really hard to shake

It will lessen in time CDK. The first few months for me were awful! Things have improved a lot since then. I sleep better (8hours every night w/o breaks), no more headaches, and anxiety is WAY down!

The anxiety is just a rebound from being so chill/sedated for 3 years. Give your body sometime to readjust, 58 days is not that long in comparison to 3 years. Just try and relax, it's all part of the healing process.

Man thanks for the reply I just saw this. It's getting the best of me today. I'm over 60 days. I will say there does seem to be progress but it's very slow and very two steps forward one step back sort of progress. Is this what you experienced as well. Just hearing more about yours may help some. Uhg I hate these days

I know what you're going through CDK and it sucks! The first 2-3 months we're the worst for me. I had chest pain, palpitations, increased heart rate, and high blood pressure. You name it. It lessend significantly since then.

Now I'm about 5 months since my quit and all my symptoms have gone but the occasional chest pain and ringing in my ears.

Do you experience chest pain as well or is it just feeling your heartbeat?

I wouldn't call it chest pain, more of a tightness in my chest with just very strange sensations/pains which can and do happen else where on the body. The thing that gets me the most about the heart is how easily it is elevated and how disoriented I feel from it (send me into a slight panic) then the...."damn I'll be this way forever thoughts" get in my head. That's usually check mate because then I get in my head and it's a journey to get out of that. Even though I've read so many people say YOU WILL NOT FEEL LIKE THIS FOREVER. I also think it's possible that I'm just more aware of my heart being elevated because I'm hyper-aware/sensitive now a days and it may actually not be any higher than normal but in the moment it doesn't feel like it should (I'm sure you know what I mean) Crazy part is while I was using I had anxiety about made up things, like a car coming around a blind corner really fast or some type of surprising imaginary situation....now I honestly feel more chill about everything, no more anxiety when driving, I've made peace with my place in life and wastedtime/opportunities, 2 year relationship ended recently...I feel like mentally I've done just about as much growth a person can do in 2 months it's just the damn physiological symptoms that keep
me guessing these days

Another thing is the ear ringing seems to have gone away or at least subsided to be less noticeable. I had a good bit of anxiety trying to fall asleep which is when aniexty and tinnitus seem to be at their wors. I haven't heard any ringing for a solid 4-5 days now but I know with all this stuff it could come back
