Anxiety, Tight chest

I have a severe anxiety and depression during Hepatitis C treatment. My symptoms were shortness of breath, dizziness, I could not swallow, I could not talk, I didn't want to see anyone, I was not driving and much more. I felt save only in my bedroom. Thanks god I have very supportive family and great doctor. Few month past, but we steal searching for right combination of medications. My symptoms are MUCH better, I stated to drive, my panic attack are mostly under control. But now I got new symptom-stiffness in the chest, I feel like someone put sandbag on my chest. Did anybody experience this symptom during anxiety. It's scares me, I start thinking that maybe it has nothing to do with anxiety?

I'm glad to hear that you're doing better. Yes, many of us that have anxiety get the tight chest feeling. Has your Dr checked you for any other possible reason this may be happening?

Yes, he did.Nothing, but anxiety. But day by day my symptoms are much better. After 1 week of new medication I almost don't have tight chest feeling
Thank you for your support.
