chest pain

when I get upset or really tense,  I feel tight in the chest like I can't breath and sometimes have chest pain,is this heart related? I have been tested for heart issues,nothing came back. BUt if I get really upset and yell, then I am really tight and feel like I can't breath plus chest pain,should I be worried?

In my opinion, if you have been cleared medically then you are fine.  My health anxiety originally stemmed from heart health and I feared like I had heart related problems even though tests and doctors said otherwise.

When I get upset, I experience the same symptoms....it is the tensing of your muscles.  Anxiety and stress can really take a toll on us both mentally and physically.  Furthermore, in my experience we also tend to focus on every little variance in the region we are focused on.  For example, when I get upset I get pains all over, when I walk up a flight of stairs I breathe heavily, etc.  Is it heart related?  Maybe, BUT it is a NORMAL reaction to stimuli which is a good thing.  Since you have been to the docs and gotten a clean bill of health, I would focus on confronting the anxiety.  Have you seen a therapist about this at all?  You would be quite surprised how far a little knowledge can go in learning to thrive with this...keep us posted!

Has anyone in here experienced nausea when they are suffering from an anxiety attack?  I also get the tightness in my chest and feel like I can't breathe but have noticed nausea, as well.  I am on Klonopin, .5 3 times per day, which seems to be helping.  I tried to taper, on my own, and got down to 2 pills and it came back.  I am also on Celexa for depression, which I have suffered from since I was 9.
