    HI I was literally just about to write about something similar, for the past hour and half iv had sharp pains in left side of.my chest which then feels like it travels to my ribs, it's such a sharp shooting stabbing type pain which is coming and going every few seconds! It's really worrying me I'm thinking it's my heart as usual I suffer with severe chest pains all the time as well as palpitations and doctors day it's anxiety as usual but I'm not convinced as the pain is so severe! I'm So scared I haven't had this before but iv taken painkillers and doesn't seem to be going off I'm also on propanolol 10mg 3 times daily for about 3 weeks I have been taking these and I haven't seen that much of a difference, since December I have been to a&e 8 times because I couldn't breathe and my heart was pounding and obviously convinced it was a heart attack iv had ecgs, full blood tests and chest x ray all normal but I don't get where this pain is coming from its on my left side and I'm petrified of dying in my sleep im so tired but scared to go sleep I don't know what to do I'm so sorry for writing all of this but nothing is convincing me it's not my heart causing this pain it's located right where my heart is im only 22 and I feel like my days are numbered I'm not currently having a panic attack this pain is just really bothering me and I don't want to end up in a&e again I'm making an appointment with my go for.tomorrow but I fear I won't last until then sad please tell me your having these symptoms or someone can relate I can't live like this no more sad sad constantly thinking it's my heart after numerous tests but why is the pain there and my heart constantly pounding also a&e doctor said my ecg was normal but showed a few ectopic heartbeats but said it's normal and nothing to worry about but I just can't accept that there Missing something sad

      I was getting all the symptoms you both are describing and doc said aneixty and put me on sertraline at the time I didn't believe all that could be anexity but now the tablets have kicked it and the physical symptoms are getting better im starting to believe it is and this is where I feel better as I have accepted it's anexity. Just relax listen to relaxing music read a book or do something take your mind of things and just say to yourself it is anexity and I will get better.
