Hey all. On sunday I had a bit of a panic attack (my first one), it didn't last for too long but at the time I felt like I was having a heart attack. Ever since i've been feeling very anxious. I woke up the next day with a tightness in my chest and ever since been getting some pains/aches in my left arm and the left side of my chest.
I went to the doctor, he gave me an ecg and took my blood pressure, both came back normal. Today - 3 days later - and the symptons are still here, albeit not as severe. I went to the doctors again today and he said that he thinks it might be either muscle pain or costochondritis and gave me naproxen to take.
I have no reason to not trust my doc, but the anxiety in me is forever thinking the worst. I'm just wondering if my symtpons sound like they could be from costochondritis and whether it can be caused from anxiety or not?
