Anxiety chest pain is so universal and completely harmless, in fact, it usually turns out to be nothing more than muscle pain, indigestion and sometimes nerve pain, All caused by the underlying anxiety disorder.
Anxiety chest pain can be sharp, dull, in the centrer, to the side or all round the chest. It can expand into the neck and shoulders, to the back of the head and down into the stomach area. The chest pain can come and go, come and stay or you may only have an occasional twinge.
I have looked at many sites and texts since this topic comes up frequently.
If your friend is under the care of a physician and had all the cardiology tests, then IMO working on controlling the anxiety is the goal for your friend to concentrate on.
