Anxiety can cause the mind the believe you are feeling pain. In other words if you feel a twinge around the heart area and start to focus in on that, it will get worse the more you worry about it. The pain is as real as it gets. I'm not saying it is not. But if you had of felt that twinge and thought nothing about it, there would be no pain.

The only other pain may be muscular pain because we go on guard when anxiety kicks in. Like a cat, you ever see one the way it goes when it senses danger. We might tighten all our muscles. More a protection instinct from the brain. Fearing some kind of danger is about to occur.

Hope this has helped in some way. If not tell us what sort of pain you are on about.
