I am so worried right now I had a panic attack last night and the chest pain was so severe I thought I was havig a heart attack.

The pain in my chest is still really bad today. I'm trying to stay calm but I'm so worried. It's Allover my chest but more so on left side. it hurts when I take in deep breaths from my chest and just in general like when I'm walking around. Kinda relieved when laying down

I am so scared that this is my heart or lugs sad

    Hi, I also have had chest pains and palpitations for seven years now. All from aching/stabbing/stinging/crushing types of pains. They come and go, I have had all the tests which were ok. See your doctor if you concerned. Reassurance from test results should help....

      Oh my god I have the exact same thing. I have all that pain in all of those places and can't get the idea of heart attack out of my mind. I phoned 111 last night, I've had an ecg and blood tests too.

      'Just anxiety' they always say. Wish our minds could accept that sad

      I hope you feel better soon. This is all just totally rubbish but we'll get there eventually x

      I know it all too well, the thing is we never learn. Like sometimes I sit and wonder why I'm so convinced that I'm gonna die when I've been wrong about it so far, why should I take the negative thoughts word for it? But I do. Apparently Zoloft (sertraline) is a good medication , I've revebtly started taking it. I'm just waiting for it to start working XD

    Hi, had the same thing now since i was 18, so about 5 years now. I still get really bad chest pains/panic attacks and i havent found anyway unfortunately to stop it or to stop me from worrying while a panic attack actually happens! The best thing i tell myself when i'm experiencing chest pains etc is that if it was actually something serious (mines always a 'heart attack') then it wouldv'e happened by now! It helps a little but i find by distracting myself and telling myself that that it works.

    Hope that helps a bit, don't let it beat you.

      I try to say that to myself like ' look if you were having a heart attack you'd had had one by now ' but There's just always the thoughts saying 'no listen this is a heart attack you're going to die '

      I did get control of it for a few weeks but i lost it again x

      Yeah I think that too like 'this time is different, this time something's wrong'

      I'm sure that you'll be fine, maybe take some paracetamol or some ibuprofen cos they're anti inflammatory and should help the pain. When I feel panicky about having a heart attack cos of all this iv taken to checking my pulse in my wrist and if it's beating normally then I can talk myself out of it cos the pulse would be very weak there

      And there is always 111 who you can call , I'm thinking about calling them myself rolleyes x

      Hi Laura Id just like to let you know that my gp said I have Costochondritis which is inflammation of the chest wall and rib join or whatever. Very painful but not serious and is probably caused by hyperventilating during panic attacks. There's not much than can be done for it though, just got to rest

      But it can cause chest pain and also back pain and stabbing Allover chest x
