The best way to rule out chest pain caused from
your heart is to talk to your doctor. If your heart is in good health and
everything checks out, it's extremely rare to have any heart condition. While
chest pains associated with anxiety attacks can occur at any age, they're more
common at ages when coronary disease is rare, between the ages of 20 and 40.
Chances are if you do not have a history of heart problems, your chest pain in
not heart related.
Stress and palpitations are so common, and almost
always benign. That said, I can't tell you specifically what is going on, only
your Dr. can do that, so if this continues, make an appointment with a
cardiologist for further testing. For now, let's assume that you are
just experiencing one of the symptoms of anxiety. Caffeine, stress, lack
of sleep, certain foods, ETC...have all been known to bring on the
palpitations. Try to avoid these as much as possible.
I wish you well and keep on talking with us as we are here to help you.
