I haven't posted in a while, cause I thought I was doing ok.  yeah  Well I went to see a doc, because I feel into a bad depression.  Well he diagnosed me with bipolar II.  Which I;m not totally convinced.  Anyway,  I also suffer from panic/anxiety atacks also.  More anxiety lately.  The doc gave me geodon to take, which i think its helping, but I noticed that my anxiety got worse.  Could this be a side effect from aking geodon.  I also have chest pains not all the time just sometimes.  Does anyone else have chest pains from anxiety??  Not to mention I suffer from acid reflux and ulcers so maybe my chest pains are form that, but it still just seems like the anxiety has really kicked in since I started taking geodon, but it has helped the depression.
any advice appreciated

I have seen many posts here about members with chest pain that has been a sx of their anxiety, that may not be your reason so please double check with your physician.  Also you may want to look in the archives for posts re chest pain and anxiety.

Also members have reported feeling more anxious when they first start a new med until their body has adjusted to the med.

I hope this gives you a bit of info and I am sorry you are going through this rough time.  Never give up and remember to take those baby steps and you will get to a better place.

Take care. I hope you feel better soon.

hello i always have chest pain with my anxiety . but after awhile theyseem to go away . then i start to feel better , i thought it was gas . but then i realized it was from my anxiety, Trust me i know the feeling when your chest starts to tighten up. my doctor gave me flexerill he said it was just muscles . Hopefully things will ease up for allof us , do you sometime wonder where did this stuff originate from and why did you have to be the one to get it? i woner that allthe time .

I always have chest pains also with my panic/anxiety attacks. This generally how I can tell the onset of an attack or that I am not doing that well in a day. Some days the chest pains will last all day and then somedays they will disappear as quickly as they come on.

I had a huge issue with chest pains and anxiety...until I got on Klonopin. I had chest pains, more of a discomfort really, 24/7, that only got worse with a panic attack.

So long as your heart checks out...which I encourage you to check, then yes, it very well could be a sign of anxiety.

Wishing you the best...keep us posted.
