Chest tightness, breathless and feeling like I can't speak

Posted , 3 users are following.

So all of a sudden this afternoon I had feeling like my chest was tight that caused be to breathe faster and hurt my chest a bit. It's still there a little and the fast breathing has made me feel like I'm breathless too, but I'm talking to people and it feels like I can't carry on talking like I'm gonna just stop being able to talk kinda like its hard to get the words out. It's hard to explain! I'm hoping this is just my anxiety but does anyone else get this?

      Thank you for the reassurance it helps a lot! I don't normally have anxiety to do with the heart normally it's about other health things. But guess anxiety shows itself in so many different ways. I will look that up! X
