    i heard about people with anxiety getting pains in the heart but my opinion would be cause yo worry to much and get to anxious and feel fear it makes the heart worry to much and the more you think about it the more it will stay there how are you feeling now? i hope your feeling better how long has it been going on?

    I had anxity attack last night and had pains in my chest for little while. Felt like stress or tense muscles on my chest bone. It made me more anxious. But i relaxed eventually and it eased. I don't often get pains with my anixty just it's a pain in the bottom. Maybe try a hot bath you might need to try relax your muscles

    It's usually the muscles around the heart which get tense and tight (they wont affect you heart) or it is sometimes stomach tension (your stomach is higher in your body than you think). Either way it is anxiety and will do you no harm. I have had this many times and its worrying but nothing has ever happened from it (like everything else about anxiety, it scares you but doesnt actually do anything). We are all still here.

    Stabbing pains in your chest is not associated with your heart. Pain that is, is usually heavy and feel like there is something on it. But not all heavy feelings are connected  with heart trouble. Sharp pains are caused by many things. Usually not harmful. Stress, Anxiety, Gas, Muscle irritation, and many other benign causes. Rarely something is wrong. So i'll just tell you to calm down and everything is going to be alright. If this continues for over a week or 2 weeks, i'll recommened you to go to the doctor just case. Good luck! smile

      I am also dealing with this. I get fluttering in my chest, sharp pains, chest heaviness, and shortness of breath or the feeling like i can't breathe. The more I concentrate on my heart rate and breathing, the more it gets worse I do breathing excersises and tell myself that everything is going to be ok, I  at a very young age for there to be heart problems. If I was older, yeah i would be more scared. My mom gets this too. She feels a huge ball in her chest and she could barely breathe. But it's cause of her gas. She also takes medication for this. Im guessing mine is genetic.

      *Also, if your pain is associated with stomach pain, cramps, or discomfort, it is usually gas or bad digestion and is not harmful. If you move and the pain changes there is NOTHING to be afraid of. This is very common and many people rush to the ER cause of this. It usually turns out to be benign. 

      I wish you good luck. smile

      *Try to get some rest. Or try to get your mind off of this and do something distracting like watching a YouTube video. smile or if you feel like eating something, eat some fruit (banana or apple).

      Again, gooood luckkk. smile smile smile

    I used to get it, awful feeling, i also feel like i'm unreal or in a dream, it makes me panic, i've went to the hospital twice after feeling this to be told it's anxiety, i know it's really scary, because when i used to feel it, i thought i was going through a heart attack, and i felt like i would choke or my heart wll stop and i would die, but nothing really happens, i also feel squeezing or something like a lump stuck in my throat and it is really uncomfortable, try to go for walks regularly and do things u like to do, to keep ur mind of it, i know it's hard, but i'm sure u'll get over it. Just put in your mind the thought that this is a normal thing and it won't hurt u. Stay healthy and GOOD LUCK! :D :D
