Anxiety chest pain is so universal and completely harmless, in fact, it usually turns out to be nothing more than muscle pain, indigestion and sometimes nerve pain, All caused by the underlying anxiety disorder.
Anxiety chest pain can be sharp, dull, in the centrer, to the side or all round the chest. It can expand into the neck and shoulders, to the back of the head and down into the stomach area. The chest pain can come and go, come and stay or you may only have an occasional twinge.
I have looked at many sites and texts since this topic comes up frequently.
If your friend is under the care of a physician and had all the cardiology tests, then IMO working on controlling the anxiety is the goal for your friend to concentrate on.

Thanks Kitt for your response,
Unfortunately my friend has been battling this for almost 2 years now and has not been able to accept an anxiety diagnosis. Her personality does not fit the profile. She is not a worrier and does not stress out easy. Her overall symptoms do not fit the typical panic attack. It's not just chest pain, it's sometimes a vibrating sensation. Medication does not seem to help so far. Insurance is a problem and she's not sure where else to turn. I'm hoping that someone might have the exact same symptoms.
Well, thanks again.

i would like to talk to you about your friend that has the vibrating symptoms,im pretty sure she has the samething i have.i just don't think she knows how to explain it.
It would probably be best if you communicated with her directly. I have asked her to post her situation on this forum but she is reluctant, so I'm not gonna push. Maybe you can describe your symptoms and I can show it to her. If she feels that she can identify she can contact you.
