Hopes, you should still see your doc about
the pain, but thought I'd offer my cents (don't know how much to label it with inflation these days..lol).
Whenever I get extra stressed, and it usually has to be out of the ordinary stress, my chest and jaw hurt too. I can feel the tension coming from my whatever muscles they are called along my back and across my shoulders and up my neck to my jaw. The doc actually diagnosed me with a TMJ-like disorder caused by tense muscles.
The night I got hit by a tornado, my mom wasn't looking too hot, my kids were driving me batty, couldn't
open my front door (tree branches in my face), my mobile home destroyed, couldn't see damaged to my mom's house too dark, fiance on cell phone saying he's stuck a mile away, trees down, power lines down.. no way could paramedics get here if something happened, two more super cells coming and no power to find out about
them..etc... I had INCREDIBLE chest pain, the worst in my life. Luckily, I had learned enough about
panic to know it "probably"wasn't a heartattack.... I just started eating klonopin. Normally I took .5 mg a day.. but probably came close to 2mg before that night was over. It worked tho.. all the symptoms went away, just a dull soreness left where the muscles had tensed so much. (I did check with my doc later, and he said in situations like that I had his FULL permission to take my klono any way I needed it..lol)
That whole long story was just my way of showing how muscle tension from anxiety can cause pain. I hope you are feeling better and that nothing is really wrong.
