If you're young and otherwise fit, chest pain is most likely due to anxiety.

I'm 27 and have been suffering from anxiety and panic for 10 years now. I've had ecgs, blood work, holter monitor, and stress echo. Everything always came back normal and fine! If you have seen your doctor in the past year and they have given you a clean bill of health then it is more than likely anxiety related. I even ended up in the ER last Halloween because of mine. Remember one thing, the more you think and worry and panic about the symptoms the worse they get. I KNOW first hand how awful they can be, but the more fear the more you feed the symptoms. Try to relax and regain some type of calmness and peace.

How long have you been dealing with these exact feelings? I do get dizzy at times but it is usually very rare. I've been doing a lot better since getting the tests done on me. Anytime I feel something weird in my chest or my heart rate I just tell myself that the doctors who are experts have said I'm fine and to trust in them. I am also religious and I pray daily, which I can say has helped me in the past a ton and also this time around.

The more you worry the less likely it is to settle. Try and get your head into enjoying life. Go out socialise, exercise have fun. You know the tests are all normal and chest pains for people in their 20s is a story that is on here every day and none of them have any heart probems. It is all down to controlling your anxiety
