    but only when i take a very deep breathe. i am having problems with anxiety, and am feeling nervous right now for no real reason. it doesn't hurt with normal breathes at all, just when it's a deep breathe. i feel very uptight right now. it isn't painful, just like my chest is tight from being anxious and i keep thinking what if it's my heart which makes me even more uptight and nervous. my medication im taking(lexapro) sometimes makes me a little anxious and i haven't taken any of my anxiety pills today, but i might just to see if it calms me down. theres np pains in my arms, just tightness from not being able to relax.

I certainly am not a Dr. and I as I'm not there with you, I don't want you to take any chances!
 
SFG, you sound as if you need to try and get a grip on this situation and perhaps try some breathing right now-you're probably getting so worked up here that it's hard to concentrate, but a little breathing in through your nose to the count of 5, slowly.  Then holding it in for the count of five and then slowly exhaling to the count of 5...see if this helps a little.  Are you familiar with this technique, or something similar?  Only do it once or twice in an hour, never more than 3 times.   
 
If this isn't working then please do not hesitate!-call 911!!
 
Please let me know how you are doing!?  Hugs, Teri tongue

im fine now. i took 2 of my anti anxiety pills, and it calmed me down. i had chinese food today, so there i was feeling a little guilty, but the tightness is gone and i feel fine. i knew it wasn't my heart, but the panic, but all i could do was say to myself what if it isn't, what if it is your heart. but now that the meds have kicked in, i have control and am totally relaxed. just took my bp, and it was 120/75, so if it were a heart thing i doubt it would be that good.

Glad you're ok and that the BP seems real good. Panic attacks are no fun. But hang in there and keep up the good work. It'll pay off in the long run.

i knew it was panic the whole time, or anxiety. not really a panc attack, just my mind racing. im going to talk to my doctor on the 13th, and ask him if i have anything to worry about. i mean if my bp is normal, and my cholestrol is 144, with good cholestrol being above 35 i think i should absolutely nothing to worry about except losing my weight.

yeah, i slept fine last night. today i have a tight feeling in my chest and stomach, but it almost went away after taking some more anxiety pills. my fiances dad is a firefighter, and said that the tightness is being brought on by stress, which i believe because i hate my job and thats where i was. plus i kinda got my mind racing, which isn;t a good thing, but i never had a panic attack. just alot of the what if's going around in my head. i really hate anxiety, and if anybody has it you will know what im talking about. i've also seens posts in the depression forum about people who have the similar thing going on with them.
