Hello Jenny,

I would need more info.  Do you have anxiety attacks, do you have any other health problems.  Yes chest pain can be caused by anxiety but many other problems may cause chest pain too.  You may want to follow up with your physician.

Hello jenny I have been having panic attacks for a long time,but i have never experienced chest pain.I have had the chest tightness though!! And it is hard to breath when you have P/A. I dont know when you said you had several drinks if you were speaking of alchoholic beverages or not but if so alchohol can intesify the effect of panic attacks and you shouldnt drink on any kind of depression or anxiety meds because that can make you experience problems too. Like kitt said you would need to be a little more specific as to what your symtoms are.

Hi Jenny

It could be anything. It could be panic attacks but its best you check your doctor so you can have illnesses ruled out.
