hi, thanks :-)
I guess what I wanted to know is do other people get chest pain with their panic attacks as this is a relatively new one for me.  mine has always been centered around choking panic/not being able to breathe and this is a new one which has woken me up and brought me out of bed and down to the computer in search of answers!

Hello and Welcome to Healing Well,

Yes we are around  :-) .

Anxiety and panic atacks can cause chest pain but without more info re your history it is not something we can tell you to ignore.

Age, medical history, medications and other things factor into what is the cause of the chest pain.  If this is new for you and your woried about it please to call your physician or go into your ER to be checked out. We know tons about A & P but we are not professionals.

Gentle Hugs to you, your not alone.

As Kitt mentioned, new symptoms should be checked out just to give you peace of mind. I've had the feeling where I can't breathe deeply. Your chest muscles become tight and thus you get the feeling of not being able to breathe. I'm not a doctor either but I've read this. Do you know any relaxation techniques? Also, it helps to stop the caffeine, sugar, MSG, when it comes to anxiety.

I go through this too, but you should definitely go to your Pdoc and get checked out just to relieve your mind :)

Nice to meet you and hope you get better!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace and Comfort!!!
