I half chest discomfort everyday can be at top of my stomach or middle of my chest mostly I wouldnt say it was painfull just a fullness or tightness I also burp non stop all day it's terrible. Doctor tho was acid reflux altho I don't really get burning.

    I get the same thing especially when I have palpatations which can be quite painful so of course it sets me into panic every time I have one, a huge thing with anxiety is it makes your body tense up, I know me personally I tend to tighten up around my arms and chest area due to the "fight or

    Flight" mode that anxiety causes. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow just to check that my tightness and palpatations are normal, anxiety sucks! It tricks

    Your mind into thinking these crazy thoughts. Hope you feel better and continue to put up a brave fight against this condition!

    Hi Ryan, I also suffer from chest pains, usually just right at the top of my tummy or at my breast bone, and terrible relux. The Dr says it's anxiety, it does make me tense and all my muscles hurt. So annoying, I just keep telling myself you have been checked over ECG etc.. and you are fine it's just that blooming anxiety. Take care I hope everyone feels better soon.

    No problem Ryan. The mind is a wonderful thing.....but also real annoying when you have constant anxiety. It's easier said than done, but simply put it's just retraining our brains to think a different more positive way. I have worried so long about my health and I'm trying to say to myself why ?? I mean with all the chest pains I've been having for months it would need to be the longest heart attack in the world. I try to see the funny side of it and say cmon Elaine it's your anxiety you know that, but i also know some days are better than others. Stay strong my friend. better days are still to come.cheesygrin

    Your situation is so similar to mine that I could've wrote it. Haha but when I first found out I had anxiety I got those same feelings, the chest discomfort and burping. & I do have acid reflux and my anxiety might've been triggered by it. As of now I'm terrified of whatever strange feelings I get in my body which sucks. It takes time to get used to it. You just have to stay calm basically and know it's all in your head and nothing is really going on Inside of you. Take care
