Anxiety Support

Chest burning

I was just wondering if anyone else has constant chest pain, discomfort,and or burning? Whenever I have any kind of discomfort is my chest I get super anxious. In the past before I started c.b.t I would be in a constant state of panic. I always thought I was having a heart attack. This is my main cause of my panic disorder. Im perscibed meds for heartburn,but recently started to think vaping is the culprit.. T.I.A

Can you stop vaping for a while to see if anything changes?

Absolutely! I put the vape away for now🙂 I want to stop anyway because it was only supposed to assist in my quitting smoking cigarettes! And it's been 4 months!

Possibly.. I only use a very low level of nicotine in minr so I should be fine. It's worth a try though

Yes it might just be the thing to do.

I get the burning sometimes to but it usually passes soon enough.

Same for me, not as bad As it used to be though. I sort of manage to control it most of the time now.

I don't let it control my life anymore.. it's more annoying than anything. Its like I almost had to retrain my brain and really believe the doctors when they say it's not heart related!

Same here, I also got up and did things every time it locked in. Kept myself busy.

Agree! I try not to get in my head too much. I just opened my own business and I'm a single mom of a teenager so I don't have much time to dwell. It also helps me to keep a positive attitude. I noticed when I start my day with a negative attitude I'm usually more depressed and unhappy.

You have plenty going on to keep you occupied then, that's great. It might spell the end of your anxiety, having a goal can make a big difference.
