    I have it a lot even when I don't feel anxious! I had a ecg last week it came back abnormal so I'm terrified I've got a heart problem and there not doing any further tests so my anxiety is sky high right now! I wouldn't worry if all your tests are ok x

      She said it's because I have a thin chest wall I'm naturally skinny. I no it doesn't mean bad but to my mind it does!! You've most likely got muscle pains if it was your heart you'd have found out by now do not worry, it's like when your tense you might ache but it doesn't mean there's anything sinister, are you having therapy I reccomend anxiety UK I've just been having a chat with a volunteer there brill!!
