Chest pain

I'm on the verge of a complete panic attack all because I am having the worst physical symptoms. My chest hurts and is very heavy.

You haven't allowed it to get this far in a while don't let it again. Easier said than done I know believe me I suffer this as well. I usually repeat in my head it's not real (although it physically feels real) it's just anxiety.

Thanks so much for your reply. I'm feeling so much better.i just needed to get out of my head and distract myself. I'm doing some positive self talk and reassuring myself that I suffer from anxiety and this is a normal symptom of anxiety.

Just remember that it is the anxiety and that's all, it won't harm you. The lump thing is typical I get it too.

You will be OK.
