Hello Se7! If you are that concerned about it being something more serious, I would suggest going to the emergency room and getting checked out. Better safe than sorry! It does sound like anxiety/panic attacks could be a possibility though, but i'm not a doctor by any means, so like I said, if you are really concerned, don't hesitate to get it checked.

Hi 7suns and welcome!

I am glad that you have posted with us. We have many wonderful forums here that could be of interest to you.

I would first start off by seeing your doctor and checking out your whole body for any phsysical reason for the way that you are feeling. You could be suffering from GERD, especially if you are waking up in the night with a bubble feeling in your chest.

You may also be dealing with something like asthma. Of course it is always a good idea to have a cardio work up as well when dealing with symptoms like these...the symptoms of panic and heart realated issues are very similar and hard to distinguish sometimes.

Let us know what you find out, and feel free to post here anytime with us...or in another forum depending what you are dealing with:)

Well now that you know that it is anxiety that is causing some of your symptoms, you can start to work on reducing your stress levels through daily exercises that include breathing and relaxation.

We have some links to videos that teach these in our Resource Guide (main page 3rd post) We also have some other self-help methods listed there as well.

As for the acid reflux/GERD we have a room for that here at HW that you may want to check out.

Keep posting with us here as well. it helps to talk with others who have similar struggles and worries. We will be here to support you and help when we can:)

Take care,
S.C.
