    Hi

    Anxiety affects people in different ways, what you are describing does sound like anxiety and you have had test done and all is ok so that is good.

    Personally it is a pain in the middle of my chest and a heavy tightness accross my chest and pain in my tummy around my ribcage (that is just one of many many anxiety symptoms) you just get rid of one and another comes along, it is nasty.

    Have you considered medication or therapy?

    You should discuss it with you doctor.

      Well thats good, the citalipram will take a few weeks to kick in.

      Try to talk to you family and friends, keep telling yourself its not my heart its anxiety.

      Anxiety thrives of us worrying its a viciouc cycle, I know it is hard god knows I have really bad days too but Im determined Im going to fight it

      Dies the pinch feeling hurt at all and do you get it all over your body? I get this pinching feeling it only lasts seconds and it doesn't hurt at all but it really feels like a pinching sensation or like a pulling sensation? I get it in legs arms feet hands

      ya i guess but it dont really bother me with other areas of my body..the one that bothers me is always my chest area..especially my left side..i guess it makes you feel all sort of funny feeling..for me usually the feelings are like undescribable..you know..its just there..doesnt hurt or anything but it sends me into fear/panic mode
