Horrific Insomnia and extremely bad Heart Palpitations

Hi,

For the last three months my sleeping has been getting progressively worse and its now at a point where I feel my life is endangered. Every night i’m now getting a combined maximum of 2 hours sleep, never reaching a deep sleep. I wake up feeling shattered, feel exhausted all day and then can’t fall asleep at night – so much so it’s bringing me to tears.

The last two weeks of has seen the introduction of heart palpitations, general irregular heartbeat and stabbing pains in my chest. Sometimes before sleep at night my lower legs ache terribly and that combined with my heart which I can feel beating through my chest and through body parts like ears prevents me from sleeping.

I’m a 24 year old female, and I need help as i’m now getting concerned for my life.

Thank you for any advice.

    Hi..
    Considering your age, it looks like a case of severe anxiety and insomnia that can be responsible for the symptoms that you are facing..
    However once thyroid problems should be checked and also get your vitals examined..
