I don't know why, but I think maybe all of us with anxiety share this same issue. It is my worst fear, a heart attack...I have costochondritis, and ulcerative colitis. Both of those will make my chest hurt, and then my arm will hurt. Then my anxiety gets a bit going, and then my jaw will hurt, and my shoulder blade will hurt too. I have gone into the E.R. when these symptoms have been going on, and all my test were good. For the life of me, I can never get it out of my head that it's not my heart. I think it's a never ending cycle. My pains make my anxiety worse, then my anxiety makes my pain worse. There could be many other health issues that could be my problem, but I always think the heart. Yes my Dad died of a massive heart attack, but my Mom died of cancer. Why is my focus always my heart? I know this doesn't help much, but I just wanted to say your not alone..
