damage done by my tics?

I've been experiencing chest and throat-like tics that have me tensing up parts of my chest and throat and I was wondering if it's conceivable that I could cause vital damage to my heart by tensing up my throat and chest area?
When I do these tension like tics It feels like I might being pulling something out of place or maybe tearing something
after I do these tics I sometimes get anxious that I might of done vital damage please anyone can you give me anything on this topic I'm feeling terrible

wow- i have what sounds like the same tics…never met anyone else with the same ones! I've never had any doctor say that I would cause any damage to my internal organs…the muscles aren't in with the internal organs so I don't think the tics can damage them :)
