Hi I am hoping someone can help

For a while I’ve had occasional chest pain which can Be quite bad. It’s there most days slightly, but very few months it seems to come on more for a few hours and it ends up in my back.Pretty much the same place as it occurs in my chest but in the back

I get a slight dizzy spell often too. Not necessarily accompying the pain but it’s there a lot. Not a dizzy spell that stops me from what I’m doing. But just a very slight dizzy spell.
I’ve been to hospital a couple of times and had bloods done and ECG and always been fine
Do either of the above sound like anxiety symptoms? I have had quite a few big worries over the last couple of years.
Thank you for anyone taking the time to read this

Hey :) for a start, it's good that your tests all came clear! But of course you'll still have concerns over this issue. Chest pains and dizziness are both possible symptoms of anxiety, but could be something else, or simply 'unexplained'. Either way, your GP should be able to help here as they can give a better answer based on your situation <3

Those two both sound like symptoms of anxiety. During an anxiety attack (which you may not know you're having, and may feel calm at the time) blood gets diverted to your heart and away from your extremities. This is part of the fight or flight response by your body to perceived danger. This can result in a heavy feeling in your chest and weak or tingly limbs.

I phoned the ambulance because I was getting chest pains, I honestly thought I was having a heart attack. I was taken to the hospital and I got tests done. I was feeling dizzy, I was so scared, it felt like I was underwater and I couldn’t breathe. However, the doctor said to me, this is normal for people having panic attacks. I get them from time time. They are scary and wouldn’t wish them on anyone but with talking and sharing your thoughts on here, it might help.
a panic attack will always pass, I take antidepressants to help with my depression, and they have helped me.
please get in touch with your doctor, even if it’s just for reassurance. My moms brother said he had taken a lot of people into hospital with chest pains, he was a paramedic, and they were having a massive panic attack which is completely treatable..
I hope you feel better soon. I really do 💕

Pl

pains gone but still having weird dizzy type feelings. Like a pressure type feeing. But I’ve had A head ultrasound scan and that came back fine.

been there most of the day. Are those all signs too?
A few people all say the same. It could be that

Hi, these are symptoms of panic attacks . Can you tell us what kind of worries you had over the last couple of years?? Is it health related or something else? I had panic attacks regularly when I was bullied in my office . It was very painful for me to survive . Still I am in shock but doing much better now . Why don't you try mindfulness meditation. It will relax your mind and reduce anxiety . I am recovering because I practice meditation .

Some big personal worries. Family issues had some job worries too. Some health worries. So a panic attack can last a few few hours even though I thought I was calm (ish). Do the tingly feet and hands a bit sound like anxiety too?

My situation was I felt sharp pain at my chest . I couldn't breath at all . I didn't paid attention how much longer I felt that pain but I thought it lasted more than an hour . After a while I didn't felt anything . I was numb . So my therapist told me panic attacks can not stay more than 10 mins but it's our mind which suffers from that attack and that trauma lasts long . During this period may be your hands , feet will start trembling . In my case after panic attack I felt numb . I couldn't move at all .

It’s strange for me. No numbness. No shaking or anything. The pain definitely lasted for over three hours for me. I’ve had the same episode every four or five months for about a year and a half now.

Maybe beta blockers ( propanol ) may help .. or loses blood pressure which gets high in anxiety
