You won't have a heart attack, Hun. My chest has felt tight when very anxious and my breath quickens. But there'sno logical reason why that should turn into a heart attack. Anxiety symptoms are caused by adrenaline shooting through your blood and making the heart beat faster and breath quicken. If you have asthma then this can feel worse. It may be a n idea to speak to your GP, just to make sure your asthma medication is correct as this is very important.

Don't worry about having a heart attack as this will only proliferate the anxiety. When you feel like this, try to calm yourself, whether this means going away into a room on your own or sitting in te dark or going for a bath or a walk. Even if it only calms you a little, it makes all the difference. Anxiety can be horrible to live with. Are you on anxiety meds? They have helped me a lot. I don't panic quite the same.

Good luck xx


Thank you so much for your advice.. It means a lot to me.. I'm going to my drs today so I hope I feel better.. These multiple symptoms are awful.. Thanks again & take care:)
