Heart palpitations are a common symptom of anxiety . Palpitations are often described as an unusual awareness of the heartbeat or feeling your heart pounding or racing.

The first part of the guide discusses the basics of heart function, heart attack symptoms, emergency care, medications, tests and treatments performed in the hospital.
