Today I am not feeling so well. I'm very shaky and antsy and my chest is hurting really bad. I want to go to the hospital but I've gone so many times that my bill exceeds higher than the skyscrapers. I'm so scared. Is this normal? I've had anxiety attacks for the longest like how can I be sure that this is not one or is or whatever...? Does anyone know or is my best bet to just go to the hospital?

I go through this as well. They are classic symptoms of anxiety, but if you want to relieve your mind you might make an appt. with your doc as soon as you are able :) Have you been doing CBT or any of the Relaxation and Breathing Exercises?

SinSin305: It is a scary feeling that you are experiencing. Remember the mind does not know the difference between real and 'imagined' pain. It is real. Yet inside your head is this critical 'friend'
nono berating you for your panicky feelings that are being experienced as chest pain etc. Now this is not medical advice check out your pains if you are unsure but keeping that in mind..there is little doubt that your nagging negative thoughts have accumulated over time till they harass you with these sensations. You are not your thoughts. If you change your thoughts will you no longer be you. You are not your feelings. Feelings are the end result of tons of cumulative thoughts brought into the physical. You are you. In the now, if you really let go just for a minute of the demons of past fears and future what if worries..you really are fine in the now ( assuming no actual medical condition of course). It has taken me years of mental and emotional practice with numerous healing modalities to capture this 'now' outlook most of the time and when I relapse into anxiety I completely forgive myself for doing so and so should you.Forgiving yourself is huge in getting better!. ( EFT and Neurofeedback have been particularly beneficial for me. Use what works for you.) I know you can have many more moments of peace and tranquility with only rare moments of moderate-mild anxiety. You can do this. We will support you through it. Anxiety-

Hi sinsin

Welcome to the forum. As Greengrove said these are classic signs of anxiety but if you are worried do goto your doctor and tell him how you are feeling and he/she will be able to give you advice re any medication you might need or therapy.

Good Morning,

Yes chest discomfort can be related to your anxiety.  If you go to the Search site Feature above and type in Chest Pain and Anxiety you will find many threads on this very topic.

I agree if you feel you are in need of medical help, please do call you physician's office or the nurse triage line.  Be sure to tell them all you sx including your hx of anxiety.

Remember I am not a professional.

Thank you everyone for your support. This weekend was a bit rough but I'm doing better today. So far...I've been taking my meds especially my xanax but this time I take the whole one instead of breaking it up in quarters. I've been more relaxed since I do that so let's see how far I can get that way. Hope you guys are well...
