I have a major pressure around my heart that's been going on for about a month whether I'm just sitting down or walking...its really scaring me..I will walk ten feet and all of a sudden I get almost like a "butterfly in the stomach" feeling but in my chest..and im not talking about heart flutters. I have to take a deep breath when this happens...and also sometimes when i take a breath it feels like I am inhaling a menthol cigarette. Idk what to do anymore..of course now I'm developing sore throats...hiv and heart failure is all thats on my mind...

Heart failure would cause more symptoms than what you are having. As for the butterfly feeling in your heart...you may be having premature beats which is completely normal! Most people don't even feel them, but you are just more in tune with your body so you notice it.  I am 32, in good health, have had a work up with my cardiologist and probably have about 40 or so premature beats each day.

The menthol taste could just be from reflux, and would also explain the pressure you are feeling in your chest. As for the sore throat...it's that time of year!

Agreed. Serious heart issues would present themselves in a much more obvious manner at your young age, IMHO. Your ticker isn't gonna fail you:) It's your Anxiety Disorder(s) and the associated faulty thinking that is failing you. I use "fail" loosely, as we are not failures for suffering through these disorders at all:) The HIV fear isn't going anywhere, either, until you have the simple test. I know you're battling the fears...I feel your pain. But, pushing through them and getting the test is paramount for you to garner some solace. Peace..and Feel Well:)

I have the same exact symptoms.  did you ever find out what was causing the menthol cig feeling?  I am very nervous. I never smoked those and quit smoking 8 years ago in my 20's. 

Please let me know

I have a major pressure around my heart that's been going on for about a month whether I'm just sitting down or walking...its really scaring me..I will walk ten feet and all of a sudden I get almost like a "butterfly in the stomach" feeling but in my chest..and im not talking about heart flutters. I have to take a deep breath when this happens...and also sometimes when i take a breath it feels like I am inhaling ecigs a  lot. Idk what to do anymore..of course now I'm developing sore throats...hiv and heart failure is all thats on my mind...
Well there is nothing like heart failure.. Yes it could be minor throat issue.. Be calm and visit a specialist.. You will be fit soon..

I don't smoke so I don't know if it's really the same sensation, but I think I know the menthol feeling you describe.  I get that a lot when I'm short of breath and my mouth and throat are probably really dry.
