I have NEVER had any sort of chest pain till I started having anxiety. My anxiety came froma bad relationship, tho I am mentally much better, I still have some anxiety and when I do, I get the sudden chest pains that make me jump. 99% of the time when I am laying down trying to go to bed. tightness and sometimes a little burning. What can I do to make this better?? This too scares me sooo much and makes my anxiety worse! Iw ant to just freak out and cry!!
Hi. I was just hospitalized for chest pains caused by anxiety. The best thing to try and do is relax. Think positive and be grateful for our good health. I have been trying to replace all and any worries with something positive. =)
hi i have chest pains too all through anxiety, it can be caused by heartburn, indigestion too. chest pains are very common in anxiety, as someone suggested you can try medication and some therapy. i choose to not take medication so just have to try and ignore them. just remember when you get the symptoms remind yourself that its just anxiety. i trust you have told your doc about these symptoms? keep us posted
Oh yes, I am on meds and I go to therapy every other week. I am well aware what the cause is, I took a Xanax last night and it stopped them. I feel mad at myself for some reason. I feel like "how did u get to the point to where u have to take a pill to calm u down, and NOW get rid of chest pains?" I am a positive thinker but it just makes me mad. Im 25! I should NOT be having chest pains when I begin to think a certainw ay or get upset. It just annoys me.
I went to the Dr today. They did an EKG. Everythings fine. They said I also have an upper res. infection. Since I live in MI, it is soooo cold and snowy. I feel some what better, have to learn to control my anxiety better. Still having chest tightness, they gave me an Albuterol inhalor. I hope It gets better!

I am a 40 year old married mom of 2. I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for several years and have yet to find any long term relief. I have been to the ER thinking for sure I was having a heart attack, both times...negative. I followed up with a cardiologist and after all the tests, was cleared of any heart problems. It is incredibly frustrating going to a Dr. and telling them all of these physical symptoms that I have and them just nodding their head and saying.."it's just anxiety.". I have been prescribed all sorts of different anti depressants and so far none have worked. I take dissolvable Xanax at the start of a panic attack and sometimes it works like a charm, other times not so much. I found this forum tonight and was relieved to see that I am not the only one going through this! Anxiety has restricted me in so many ways...I just don't feel like myself. I truly feel that unless you have experienced this first hand, you really have no idea the guilt and sadness associated with it. Thank you to all of you that have shared your stories, if I find a miracle cure, I will be sure to post it...
I am a 28 year old female and I have the same problem I have been to three hospitals and they all say everything is fine after doing a ekg. So I decided to go to a clinic about the same issue and they say it's anxiety so they have me on clonazepam 0.5 mg to take twice a day. I am just scared because I don't know how I let myself get like this. I know sometimes I would get nervous for no reason and been get so mad but not knowing the effect that it is doing to my body I just hope and pray that I don't have to takethis medicine for the rest of my life. I missed one dose and chest pain came back. This is so scary
I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for years. Recently, the chest discomfort has been debilitating. I decided to start on Zoloft yesterday and since the chest pain has got worse! I am so frustrated. Do I give it time or stop now?
