    I get chest pains all the bloody time!

    I have history of DVT and had a PE at 24 (now 43) and a heart attack followed three months later.

    From what I have read stress increases platelets thus clotting and it has been suggested by naturopath, GP and cardiologist that the pains I am experiencing are likely small clots breaking up, small enough to go through heart and lodge in lungs.

    Worth getting blood tests to check platelet counts.

    From what I understand when we are in 'fight or flight' mode because of chronic or acute stress and because of the tiger that we are running away from our blood platelet count goes up just incase the tiger bites us.

    Mine is constantly at the upper acceptable level near 450 whereas my DH's is only 236 (or thereabout)

    I know when I'm under a lot of stress it feels like a very heavy weight sitting on my chest but at other times it is sharp pain mid chest radiating to the left lung, sometimes up neck to left shoulder.

    I'm the same mate and so are a lot of other people on this forum, anxiety causes chest pain. I've had about 7 ECG's, 2 stress ecg's, a 72 hour ecg, a ultrasound on my heart, all of them came back fine but i still get chest pains. You've got ignore them and realise if you've had all the tests then it's not your heart causing the pain its the anxiety. Good luck smile

    One day I had pain shoot from head to toe along the entire left side of my body.  It literally felt like lightning.  I thought I was going to pass out.  My first throught was a heart attack, but being 24 years old, it was unlikely.

    I went to the doctor and everyone said it was a pinched nerve, torn muscle etc.  I had a ton of tests run and the end result was the same - nerve or muscle.  The same thing happend one more time.  Since that day, 7 years ago, I've had almost constant pain in my left side around my heart, ribs and back.  It can be excrutiating at times.  Feels like I've had someone beating me in the side all day.  Been to physiotherapy and massage therapy, and neither has helped at all.

    Considering all of my other mental/physical symptoms, there is no doubt that it is related to my anxiety.
