It absolutely can manifest that way. The mind and body are super powerful & anxiety will attack the things we fear & worry about most.  My heart is one of my biggest HA worries , I've had numerous EKG's, blood tests , x-rays , CT scans , & an echocardiogram and all have checked out fine answer was.... ANXIETY.  Try and do something to take your mind off thinking about it ( easier said than done) , sometimes i find going for a walk & getting fresh air helps. Hope you get some relief soon!

Hi everyone. A little update .... last night I went to sleep feeling good with no chest pain. Also woke up this morning feeling good with no chest pain. I even took a shower and then took a little nap on the couch for 1 hr before getting ready for work also with no bother. Then once I got up and got dressed I am feeling a mild discomfort in my chest. Can the mind really do this ????? OMG

Yep!  I experience that a lot. 

I'll have pain in my upper left chest one night, go to sleep and feel great the next morning.  Of course, I'm thinking about it and really analyzing every little pain I feel and lo and behold, it returns the next day. 

I can also feel fine but just think about someone else experiencing the pain and bring it on.  Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I felt a few pains in my chest.  I just went to sleep and feel fine today. 

I'm glad you are feeling better today, though.  That's a good thing.

Anxiety is horrible.

I'm just so sick and tired of having a different symptom every 2 months. The only relief I get is when I'm about to go to bed. During the day I'm always obssesing :(

Oh my goodness....I am the SAME way.  My favorite part of the day is when I'm lying in bed in the early morning before getting up.  Nothing is bothering me and I feel calm.  Once I'm up, though, it all begins. 

I wish there was an on/off switch for this. 

Has your day seemed better today?

What really happened was that I had an area on my chest that was sore when touched, no chest pain other than that. I then obsessed with it and then started getting chest discomfort. Now the original pain is gone lol unbelievable !!!!!

If you touch it and it hurts it is a muscle pain and not heart. I have had chest pain on and off of all kinds since I was about 22 years old and I'm 41 now and I have had 7 stress tests in 3 years (just for peace of mind) and countless echos holters EKG's and so on. You could be hyperventilating which will cause chest pain and also muscle pain or you could have reflux which can cause pain and also you could just have anxiety because the more you think about it, the more you manifest it. You can create this pain yourself. I have done it so many times. I went through a time of worrying about my kidneys and didn't have any heart worries or chest problems for months. Now I am back focused on it again.
