Hi Everyone,
 
My husband gets anxiety/panic attacks everyday. Lately he says he has this weak feeling around his upper chest, near his heart. He plans on seeing a cardiologist to rule anything out but till then, I wanted to ask if anyone else gets a similiar weak feeling around their chest? Any replies would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hello and Welcome to Healing Well,

Please read some of the posts and you will see that  weak and feeling vulnerable are common reactions to anxiety.  Heart palpitations are also a sign of Panic and anxiety.

People become scared and begin having that “electrical storm” in thier  brain (confused, confusing and racing thoughts). That “storm” quickly becomes a panic attack. .

I would like to see you follow up with tests as everyone is different and the person that can diagnosis best is your physician.

Glad to have you with us and keep posting.

Thank you for the welcome, I have been enjoying your forum for awhile now, just haven't posted alot in this section but have quite a few posts here. I think I have maybe 121 posts and have been asking questions for some time now. My post as I had written was for my husband and as I said he was going to see a cardiologist.
I read what you bumped up and everyone said they were experiencing SHARP chest pains. I would like to hear from someone that has had a weak feeling. I am aware of the sharp chest pains that accompany anxiety. This is not answering my question. I appreciate your reply though.
If there is someone that gets panic/anxiety attacks and has felt a weakness around their chest or heart area, I'd like to hear from them. Thank you.

Dear Denim,

My welcome to you was because I am new to the forum and I did not believe we had met yet, it is a pleasure to meet everyone.

I did understand you are taking your husband to the cardiologist and I support you completely.  I have been a ER/ICU nurse for many years so I would never mean to sound demeaning. I am sorry if I did.

I tried to go back and find a specific post to match your husbands sx but did not so thought maybe the one I brought up had info  that was similiar if not exactly the same.

Someone will surely come along that has some info to share with you.

Bless you and please keep posting.

Dear stkitt,
Thank you again for the welcome. I never thought you sounded demeaning to me in any way. Unfortunately the post you brought up, which itself was titled "sharp chest pain" had people only speaking of sharp chest pains. It would be good to hear from someone who had a similar experience as my husband, but if not that's ok too. This has nothing to do with the topic but I was just curious how new you were if you've posted almost 500 times, just an observation, no big deal. :-)   I've posted on a few of the threads in this forum I believe, one I remember being lexapro and I believe a few others, asking advise for my husband and have always had nice people helping me, so thanks again.
