Im 21 male, two weeks ago i had a severe panic attack, and ever since ive had bad chest pain and hve gone to the er 3 times thinking it was due to heart problems they ran EKG, did blood tests, chest x ray and i guess they've all come out normal. Some new symptoms started a few days ago, my heart feels like it stops for a second and i gasp for air. It usually happens again right after. Another thing that started three days ago is i get shortness of Breath and dizziness not due to anxiety, and right now its been happening for about an hour but this time i felt like i couldn't feel my head, liked heres no oxygen going to my head.. Pleas e understand i really don't think this is anxiety

Hi Myfunnyvalentine,

I know that anxiety can feel like a heart attack, it can make you so that you can't breathe. But if I were you, I would explain the new symptoms to your doctor when you see them next. Anxiety can do crazy things. So try to relax. Take some nice breaths. In through the nose and out through the mouth (just incase it is anxiety). Think of smelling the roses and blowing out the candles. If it is your heart, you need to relax. If it is anxiety, you need to relax. So both instances call for relaxation. Talk to your doctor as soon as you are able to. Try not to panic. Hopefully it will stay at bay until you see your doctor.

Hugs, Karen
