    Hello friend. Your symptoms are that of anxiety. If you've been cleared of heart issues by the Docs, please trust that they're right in their diagnosis. Chest pain is one of the keystone symptoms of anxiety. It's good that you've stopped smoking, that will help you feel better in the long run, but for now I would recommend going back to your GP and discussing new meds you can take to help calm you down. Therapy would also be a good thing to look into. 

    Feel better soon. Much love xxx

      Hi. I myself have been on citalopram, I'm currently on sertraline and propranalol. Your symptoms are that of anxiety. I know it is easier to think it is something else. I get chest pain, especially lately as my stomach is playing havoc. With anxiety and panic it can come out of nowhere and with no reason or explanation and that's hard to deal with sometimes as I know myself I'm apprehensive as I don't know when/if I will get one which keeps me in an anxious state x

      Iv been staying with my parents because I'm so scared of being on my own in case something happens to me. Nothing ever has but it doesn't matter if it's your first or 100th anxiety/panic attack you still think the worst and think it's "something else" I'm constantly saying "what if" I'm scared to go out on my own, be on my own. It's very debilitating, iv managed to get through it before I just hope I can again.

      Stay strong x
