Omg where to start...I am having pains in my lower chest like right above my stomach and behind my breast bone it feels like. Its really freaking me out and I had to take my xanax. I did the no no and googled but found that most people with these symptoms are usually having acid reflux or gas trapped behind their chest. idk what it is or if i should call my dr. or not. They come and go. The other night I was laying in my bend curled up looking at my phone and the pain was shooting from my upper stomach all the way to my jaw and it felt like i had to sit up and keep concentrating on breathing and it was really freaking me out. Its been happening within the last few minutes coming and going and I had to take my xanax so i wouldn't have an attack. But it really is scaring me Idk what to do..I hate running to the dr. all the time and telling him about a stupid pain that always turns out to be part of my anxeity/panic disorder. :( it just really saddens me i'm only 23 and feel like i am too young to be going through stuff like this. Well anyways I guess i'm gonna get off here and try and lay down, and hope i feel better soon. thanks guys for always being there and listening to me when i'm at my worse.

I'm 22 and i have had panic disorder on and off since i was 18 :-(

I had a bad bout of it for about 6 months, and then i was fine until just this year when i let things get back on top of me again. So don't worry, it does come and go and you do get relief from it.

If you're worried about these symptoms i would suggest you go to the dr and have it checked out. I'm sure it will be nothing to worry about at all, but just having that confirmed will help ease your mind no end.

Heartburn is a burning sensation in your chest, just behind your breastbone. Heartburn pain is often worse when lying down or bending over.

Many over-the-counter medications are available to relieve the pain of heartburn.

I think it would be wise to rule out any other medical problems for your pain and if it is heartburn ask your Dr. what medication would work best for you.

thanks guys, i took some tums and then went to sleep. If it happens again I'm calling the dr. I'm sure the fajitas i ate last night didn't help the matter lol. But yeah I'm trying to get over this stupid anxiety and it just wont go away!! I have been this way my whole life and I never knew it until a few years ago when I talked to my Aunt and she was going through the same thing I was and she explained to me exactly what was wrong and after that I was diagnosed with a/p. It just really sucks its like im scared all the time. I can't go outside by myself at night. Sometimes driving anywhere freaks me out because i'm always scared i'm gonna get in a wreck because me and my family were involved in a head on collision last year, so that just made everything worse. oh and if a cop gets behind me while i'm driving, even when i KNOW i'm not doing anything wrong i always start shaking really bad and like an adrenaline rush goes through my body. idk why but it really sucks and there is other little things that happen to me that i freak out over that the normal person wouldn't. i just hate anxiety and panicking... :(
