Hi I've suffered from depression and anxiety since I was

Patient : Hi I've suffered from depression and anxiety since I was little. I'm 18 now and still can't shake the feeling. Having anxiety means I'm probably a hypochondriac when it comes to my health but lately I've been worried about my heart. Again this could just be the anxiety but I've notic d an irregular heartbeat sometimes normally at rest and its really worrying me. I'm not very active but I've been making an effort work out s lot more but I always get out of breath quickly and the anxiety begins and it stops me from continuing. I also feel tired all the time but I'm aware that depression can make me feel that way. I just have no energy all the time and with the often fast heartbeat and occasional chest pains its stopping me from having a life. I know I need to get the courage to go and see a doctor but I'm so scared of the outcome. I should probably mention my father had a heart attack at the age of 45 which worries me as well. Thank you for listening and I like ok forward to hearing your advice I can also answer any questions you need. Kieren.
