Constant chest pains but all different

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm just wondering what kind of chest pains other people have? What does it feel like to them? I get so scared I feel so many different things in my chest and each time I feel like I'm going to pass out and die. Sometimes the pain will come down my arm into my fingers but it lasts seconds.. But those seconds are the scariest seconds of my life. This happens all day everyday 😩 Can any one relate?

      I've seen so many doctors had so many ecgs.. I actually come back from the doctors a few hours ago and everything is as it should be, hearts healthy and I'm physically well they've put it all down to anxiety, I just can't come to grips with it. The physical symptoms are awful 😩

    Hello rO

    If you are not happy with that GP, is there another at the practice who will see you

    You could go on the web and visit NHS CHOICES and check up who deals with similare  concerns

    Yes, I can relate!  Starting in May I had all kinds of chest pains - sharp, dull, stinging, burning.  It would be in my chest, ribs, back, down my arm and into my fingers.  I had all the tests and my heart was healthy as can be.  I started to work with a counselor and went on anxiety medications.  After about 6 weeks of medication, with some adjustment and changes to my lifestyle - healthy eating, exercise, etc - my chest pains are gone.  It did take time (3 months) to convince my body and mind that it is anxiety.

    I would say follow up with your GP.  If the tests are clear and they say it is anxiety, then start to do things to help you deal with anxiety. 

    It is one of the most difficult things I have been through, but you are stronger than you think!  Many, many people on this board have had the same symptoms.  Chest pain is a common physical symptom of anxiety.  It is very difficult to believe that something is not terribly wrong with her heart, but it is true.  Once the anxiety is under control, the symptoms will fade - I promise!  It does take time, but there are lots of people on here that can support you and give you guidance as well.

    Hey I can totally relate. I have had this for 7 months now. I've had ecg, blood test and chest X-ray. They are all normal. At first the pain was all the time and I had panic attavks every night. My body was always in an anxious state. I learnt to deal with it without medication and now only have about 2 bad nights a week. It feels like a really heavy pain in my chest. With all the symptoms of a heart attack. Tingling down my arms and in my hands. But I've learnt if you ride it through it eventually goes away. Hang in there

    Hey people you could try a mild dosage of tablet gabapin 100 mg after consulting your neurophysician. You could then go in for half tablet of gabapin NT... Nt is anti anxiety drug in com ination with gabapin which is to control nerve signals or sensations which may be caused due to anxiety.

    Im taking gabapin 100 so far for similar condition on my face.. Trust me you guys are far better with these symptoms in arms and chest and not on face...coz sometimes when it is more my facial nerves get tight and im unable to open my mouth.. Nerves feel sticky, foggy, rubbery.. Tingling and disturbances in ear...
