    Yes, it COULD be anxiety but that has become such a handy diagnosis, that many of us are labeled with anxiety (like me, for instance...) when it was a blood clot in my right lung.  All the same symptoms of anxiety and many conditions that are deadly serious can cause anxiety as a symptom, not the cause.  Get it checked out, please.  If this is not how you have been in the past or you know you are not an anxious person, do not hesitate to say this to your doc.  You have to tell them about your normal state, physical and mental, so they have a baseline to compare it to.  Keep records of when this happens, what happens, etc., and take this to your doc.  Have them make a copy so you can continue your own observations.  It is essential that you take part in your care and you are the only one who knows what normal is for you.  I tell my docs that normal is just a setting on a dryer!  And even at my best, I am not normal.  Best wishes getting the right diagnosis and if it doesn't feel right to you, it probably isn't.  Trust your gut.  Sometimes that is all we have to go on but it can be very helpful, especially if you are charting your symptoms well.  Let us know what this is.  Many of us have gone thru at least 1 diagnosis of anxiety when the doc simply did not know the real answer or simply decided it was easier to give this cover all diagnosis.

    thank you so much everyone! Im so grateful you took the time to write!

    could you please describe in more detail how it feels for you when it happens? are you also short of breath?

    My symptoms are new (newish) - started late last year..intitially diagnosed as dyspepsia (I never had any significant stomach related problems until then...)

    felt really short of breath back then, this is now less frequent but still happens sometimes sad

    KMRC - how was your blood clot diagnosed? I dont feel right but my GP doesnt seem concerned...

      If your doctor has said your ok then youu are please dont listen to people on hear regarding blood clots etc they are not qualified medics.

      Your symptoms are very common in anxiety I have had  them I have also had stomach problems another anxiety symptom

      I have had bloods ecgs endoscope CT scan all came back clear and it is anxiety

      Try therapy it teaches you how to cope with anxiety/panic symptoms.

      If you are still worried go to another doctor for a 2nd opinion.

      Stay Strongcool

      Hi Yvette

      sorry to hear you suffering from chest tightness

      im still not any wiser what's causing mine, still waiting for some test results. Found through trial and error that sublingual vit B12 helps me a lot! As do Epsom salt baths. Other forum members say for them its stress related, there are so many good calming meditations on YouTube or your library might have a mindfulness book with CD to listen to. But I would maybe ask your GP for cardiology referral or other things your doctor thinks appropriate, just in case. Hope you find relief soon!
