Strange feeling in chest

Posted By Morgan on July 18, 1999 at 17:55:36
I am a 31 year old man who suffers from anxiety.  My anxiety began about a year ago when I thought I was having a heart attack from jogging.  Ever since then I have had anxiety about my heart.  I went to see a cardiologist shortly after my scare, because I was having rapid heart beats, and he gave me an ekg and a stress test, and a blood test all which came back normal.  The doctor told me to exercise because I had borderline high blood pressure. Since that time I have lost 35lbs, and I have achieved a normal weight, and my blood pressure is mostly normal now unless I am really stressed out. I dont smoke or drink either.  The problem that I have been having ever since my scare is that once in a while I get this strange sensation in my chest.  The sensation is in the center of my chest and it feels like pressure.  The sensation never lasts for more than a  second, and sometimes I go for a couple of weeks without it happening. I feel fine after the sensation, and I have never had it happen more than once a day.  I also noticed that the sensation usually occurs if I am very stressed out or the day after a very stressful day. I a wondering if it is a skipped beat or something else.  It really scares me when it happens.  Also, I do aerobics five days a week, and   I have never felt the sensation before after, or during exercise.  Thanks
