Does anyone suffer from "anxiety chest pain"..... I've been to the ER twice because I truly thought I was having a heart attack, or maybe some sort of heart condition🙈 turns out it was just my anxiety. If anyone else experiences this, how long does your pains usually last? Mines is anywhere from 2 days to a week.

      This has happened to me so many times! In high school i had to walk around with a heat pack for about a week after an er visit because of them. For me taking space from whatever is stressing me out helps a bit. Heat also really helps, and ice helps, but to a lesser degree for me.

      I have. It's absolutely horrible. I have had them since I was a teenager. I've went to the er several times in the past. They kept sending me to a heart doctor until finally a Dr figured it out. I'm on meds and I still have that at times.

      I have had that feeling many many times and it's so terrible and scary. I've never went to the ER for it but have for other things do to what turned out was my anxiety getting the best of me.

      Yes, my anxiety induces my Costochondritis which has sent me to the ER due to feeling like a heart attack.

      i can't afford to go to the er but ive had terrible pain where i couldn't move or breathe due to stress or anxiety and it usually happens when im alone, it usually only lasts for a few minutes, but once it lasted an hour and i was sore the following day

        @ivddilf yeah I think I've learned through time that everyone has similar but also specific anxiety symptoms. It's crazy. Like recently I experienced the " stomach " type symptoms during an episode. Never have ever. So it was just so shocking.
