    Have you seen a dr recently? I say when in doubt go ahead and go get checked just to be on the safe side. However if you are experiencing some stress this can trigger anxiety and a anxiety attack does indeed feel like a heart attack. I know it's landed me in the er at least 3 times this past year, however I'm slowly dealing with my anxiety. Hope you get feeling better I'm here if you need to talk

    Your not having a heart attack, just as you didn't have the stroke you were worried about yesterday. Your going to have to be proactive and see a Dr about anxiety, or you'll just go down a list of things your scared you might have. Panic attacks are common, but tend to sneak up quickly typically. Your worrying because your anxious. Stop googling too as I said yesterday, youll just tie yourself up in knots

    I read your reply so you didn't have a heart attack but anyone who has chest

    pain should go to an ER or call his/her primary physician.  Palpatations could be

    anxiety but with neck pain sounds serious. Something like that needs to be

    checked out with a doctor but sounds as though you are okay now and

    getting counseling.  Glad to hear it.

      It also has to be measured with ongoing conditions, otherwise everyone with anxiety would end up in accident and emergency. I think generally a serious set of symptoms occur regardless of anxiety and just have to be thought about sensibly. As you say always check on first instance with a Dr,but try to believe them when they say we're ok

    Hi john, anxiety triggers fears and palpations. If you really fear a heart condition, I would suggest you seeing a Doctor, after all it is better to deal than keep thinking about a certain situation.  

    P.S. To relieve the worry part, just recall a situation which made you panic last time but proved out to be a false alarm as you came out unharmed. 

    Take Care
