Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, I'm 26 years old sw engineer. I have anxiety disorder but I handle it by understanding it. My Dr. Recommended me medicine for the same but I wont take.

I feel some pain back side of my chest when I take deep breath. Also little sensation in my left hand side but this happens rarely. I do feel chest pain. Tightness in my chest. Is there any serious problem??

Now I'm feeling anxious 😩.

Please help...

    Hi I would seeYour GP to be on the safe side. If the pain is severe ring NH line 111 it could be anxiety but has you say it happens rarely.

    maksmash, Ive had that same sympton so many times i cant even count,

    I know its scary you just need to know that if you have gotten a good bill of health from your doctor then its anxiety and try not to let let your thoughts scare you. Have faith in what your doctor told you and just try to let it go and soon your symptom will fade away.

      I expect you have read enough here to understand that heart palpitations are common with anxiety.  That is my main symptom.  Like the others say if you really think there may be something wrong with your heart then it will put your mind at rest if you see your doctor about it..  You will only make your anxiety worse if you are worrying that there is something wrong with your heart.  Best to get it checked out.

    Sorry but if you're having those sort of symptoms then you should get them checked out with your GP but that will be a waste of time because you won't take the medication he recommended for anxiety so you probably won't believe him or take anything he prescribes. It's probably to do with your anxiety but on the other hand it may be any number of things, only a visit to the doctor will get you a PROPER diagnosis rather than relying on amateurs on this website.  It's perfectly OK for people to tell of their experiences with the same condition that is being asked about but to prefer a diagnosis from amateurs rather than a qualified doctor isn't a good idea. 

    As you suffer from anxiety can I give you a piece of advice?  Don't spend hours reading all about the symptoms of other anxiety sufferers, it will only make you worse.   I have had my share of panic attacks and there's something coming up that I would normally have been anxious about but I stopped reading any of the messages on the Anxiety pages, I made myself look forward to going rather than only thinking of the things that could go wrong and I am sure that not reading about other people's woes has helped me so much more than reading about them getting anxious about so many, usually silly things.

    It could be the anxiety - but if you're worried go back to GP. Anxiety can make you feel all kinds of pains - I have bi-polar, depression and anxiety and numerous pains that are probably anxiety related but honestly if you have chest pain see the doctor.
