Chest pains under breast/ heart area

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been experiencing chest pains, near heart but under my left breast. It feels similar to a gas-like feeling. But sometimes if I stretch it can feel like a pulled muscle and stop me in my tracks. I am extremly nervous when it happens. I am contemplating going back to my cardiologist to be sure. Anyone have this happen to them before?

    Hi Kristina

    These sound like anxiety symptoms I get them all it could also be acid reflux.

    If you havent done so already you should get a full check up and rule out any health issues and that it is anxiety

    Them try meds and therapy

    Anxiety sucks, you have to stay strongsmile

    Hi Kristina,

    it has made me so happy to see your post because i have been having the exact same pains for about a week now! its been driving me crazy and i feel the sametoo that it is hard to beleive that anxiety can make things like this happen. Im struggling to explain to my boyfriend how it feels, he is trying to understand but i feel like sometimes he just expects me to ignore the pain-and i just can't do that. I worry and worry and worry that its something really bad and that im going to die- and when i say that he just thinks im overreacting. Anxiety really does suck sad

    see like thats the thing, at first i thought it may just be gas, but for me its not like a sharp or stabbing pin, its more like an ache and some times it feels like its my heart aswell- which was freaking me out even more
