I can't offer much advice but I feel the same. As soon as I get chest pains I feel I'm gona have a heart attatck. It's ruining my life too and family think I'm mad!!

I have just started weekly therapy which is helpful could you try something like that??

Least your results from ECGs positive.



At 19 it would be so rare for you to have a heart problem and also after having so many checks even less likely as they have all come back clear :-)

Sounds like it could be anxiety as when we tense the muscles this creates pain and we can tense are muscles without even realizing it

As already been said I think also it would be a good idea to ask your Doctor if you can be referred for some Counselling , this will help you understand why you are so anxious as well as teaching you how to reverse the way you are thinking creating the anxiety

There will always be something. There always be the 'next symptom'. And if you think you could get rid of all the symptoms you have ever experienced in your entire life, I guarantee, there would be another and another and another symptom that your mind would hook on. That's the nature of anxiety. We become so crazy self focused it cannot be any other way. More and more people become afflicted with anxiety as never before. And it happens in first world countries at an alarming rate where medicine us so 'highly' advanced. Do your research and compare rate of anxiety between first world countries and third world countries. You may be surprised. There may be many different factors as to the cause of anxiety. But ask yourself what has changed to highest degree in last 20 years? Environmental factors have change! Food and water have changed! Food tastes better with never ending variety but what has happened to its nutritional value? It has gone to hell! Ask any doctor that you know how many hours of nutrion he/she had in med school. 20? 10? 4? It's insane! Ask your grandparents or any grandparents if they even knew anybody! with Anxiety or depression. My grandmother went through WWII with 7 childre, had to feed them somehow and relocate to a place 400 miles where she lived. She and other people like her and actually every single person in Europe should all be afflicted with Anxiety and depression but it happened so rarely! Our food is so severely depleted of minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients we should ring the bells for alarm 20 or 30 years ago. Yet, all you hear it's silence. Change you diet. Stay on it for at least 3 months. Eat more quality vegetables and fruits. Less white flour or best is none. Take quality mineral abd vitamin supplements. Walk 30 min a day. Drink plenty of 'clean' water. Stop drinking if you do, smoking if you do and see what happens. Reduce your body inflammation by staying away from inflammatory foods. There is no quick fix! If there was, you and millions of other people would hear about it by now. Take total ownership of your body and of your life. Feel so good as never before in your life! Take action right now!


I have the same symptoms as you. I'm 25... just found out that I have POTS syndrome. That may be a possibility for you as well. Do you have low bp?
