Although I don't have chest pain with anxiety, I do have an overwhelming pressure and discomfort in my chest.
If the symptoms started about the same time you started Glucophage, is there any harm in doing a trial of not taking it and seeing if you feel better? If it's for PCOS and not for diabetes, I don't think there'd be any harm. (I take Gluco for PCOS also). There could be a connection with liver or gallbladder and glucophage maybe. I know when I was taking Depakote I had severe pains in the right upper quadrant of my abdomen that were pains in or around my liver. They were almost enough to send me to the ER.
Here are some possible side effects of glucophage/metformin:
•allergic reactions like skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips, or tongue
•feeling faint or lightheaded, falls
•low blood sugar (ask your doctor or health care professional for a list of these symptoms)
•muscle aches or pains
•slow or irregular heartbeat
•unusual stomach pain or discomfort
•unusually tired or weak
•metallic taste in mouth
•stomach gas, upset
Sounds like you have been through a lot. Hope you find an answer soon.
