How do I stop my heart beating so much or heavy breathing when nervous?

I sometimes talk and find it hard to get words out when my heart beats so fast and this is on an online call for work. I've heard putting ice water on the neck helps, is that true?

    You have anxiety.  Your heart beating and the heavy breathing are just symptoms.

    At least one trip to the doctor.  It's important to get a good diagnosis.

    Go to youtube and search for "mindfulness".  It's too hard to explain here.  Also search on "anxiety".

    Deep breathing exercises, meditation, calming music.  All of these things will help.

    No, you need to do breathing exercises. Look online.
