Can anxiety make your hear hurt?

I was diagnozed with anxiety two months ago and since then i been feeling awful...It's so hard to believe that anxiety can cause all this physicall pain.  My legs and hand hurt a lot and my chest feels very tight sometimes I get pins in my heart, well i think its my heart but it also be the muscles in my left side of the chest...I been to the doctor many times and to the ER as well they have done all kind of blood tests, ultrasound in the legs, EKG, and chest rays and everthing came out normal.  I just get so scare when i start feeling all this symptoms specially in my chest and those pins next to my heart, they told me it was anxiety related but they still freak me out.  Please help your experiences will help me! Thanks
