HiGreydays, i have felt a tight feeling in chest with panic attacks. the burning feeling i get also and i associate that to heartburn.I suggest to watch what you eat and log it into a diary to see what causes the burning in the chest. does it burn into your throat also?Also dont lie down after you eat, that can trigger heart burn. I feel that people with anxiety can develope heartburn.stress can upset the stomach, and cause problems like heatburn. just keep an eye on this...have a good day....

some people get heart attack type symptoms during a panic attack, but I would be thinking of heartburn, a type of indigestion and acid reflux or GERD
details of both on the net

Ok, There is really no way to describe what I felt. It wasn't heartburn, it was like tingling sensations? I don't know, I have never had them before either.

tingling is fairly common during a panic attack

Hello. I havent gotten what you describe in my chest, but I have gotten a symptom similar to that in my upper arms at times. It feels to me like an icey hot feeling( that ointment you rub on sore muscles)almost like the inside of you feels warm and tingly. I usually get that feeling from my elbows up to my shoulders and usually during the night for some reason.

YESSSS, I get that same feeling, I didn't know what to think of it! It feels like kinda a heating pad is on my chest. It also kinda feels like hives without the bumps :-)   I told my doctor about it, and she gave me nexxum for heartburn nono   I clearly told her it doesn't feel like heart burn. My chest burns and under my left arm feels sore, sometimes the bottom of my left foot will get a warming sensation. Strange but true. So I can relate to ya. I just try to relax myself and it usally goes away.

I've read about this once. It's some kind of acid that gets into your muscles or something. Sorry I don't know more. I just remember it's a normal biological response to panic and there's some reason for it. Prevents injury, allows the muscles to absorb more oxygen....something like that.

I wouldn't let it add to your worries. I've felt it in the bottom of my feet before and in my shoulders. It's kind of weird, isn't it? Not uncomfortable, really. Just odd. There are glands in your underarms. Perhaps they're producing the stuff that's causing the sensations? Don't know.

I have had this happen numerous times throughout having anxiety.  It tended to come on when I felt I was getting short of breath/tingling, it could be your muscles contracting I know when I was having this tingling my rate of breathing was also shorter.  Keep checking in...

Ive had this feeling and it tended to come right up into my throat too. I felt I couldnt swallow anything...not even a drink. It did pass but it wasn't very nice at the time. Its happened a few times with panic attacks.

I am just glad to hear I am not having a bad reaction to my zoloft. I have never felt it before so I completly lost it. IT is very scarey but does go away fairly quickly if i practice my breathing
