Hello. I think there are many in the group who will be able to relate to what you have described. Chest pain is one of the most common symptoms reported by people who suffer with anxiety. Almost everyone gets scared that it might be a heart issue, but it very rarely is. There are several possible reasons for chest pain - e.g. skeletal pain, which is caused by things like what position you go to sleep in , or what position you sit or lie down in, coughing too strenuously, asthma,acid reflux and muscle strain. I assume that you have already had heart tests done - but if not then that should be something to ask your doctor about just to rule that out as a cause. However, as I said, it is a very common symptom that springs from anxiety. I hope this helps you a little.
