    I get chest pain a lot when I am anxious. What works for me is to lean my head back and take some big deep breaths. I focus on counting - 10 in, then 10 out. Feeling a lump in your throat is very common in anxiety so do try not to worry too much. (Easier said than done I know) However, if your chest pain continues, I would go and see your doctor.x

    These are normal symtoms of anxiety, the fear will manifest itself in the body.

    The best thing to do is really concentrate on the bodily sensations, as if you are writing an essay on it. Concentrate on the feelings, they will get worse at first, but then they will begin to subside. By concentrating on the sensations instead of running away from them the body will ease and then so will the mind.

    May I suggest that you probably have an anxiety disorder and that you would be wise to seek the help of a councelling psychologist. They will help you overcome your anxiety. I know how horrible and scary it is, but it is a problem that can be cured with the right help and knowledge. Trust me I have been there and made a full recovery.

    If you have any more questions please dont hesitate to ask.

    good luck

    Also, for the short term, breathing techniques really help. Take big deep breaths- 7 seconds in and 11 seconds out. Keep repeating this until the anxiety subsides.
