middle of my chest hurts!
« on: September 15, 2010, 04:35:26 PM »
Im 33 male and lately the middle of my chest started to hurt, i get like zaps that concentrate themselves towards the center of my chest and tightness aswell. Obviously i freak out thinking on the worst! 3 mths ago did a full pysicall with ekg and all was fine. Now this has been happening, should i be concerned, back of my head feels really heavy aswell. Does anyone know what this can be? Feels like tight right in the middle of chest and once in awhile lilttle zaps!  pls help

I get pains in my chest everyday and I've been told it has nothing to do with my heart. You had a clear EKG recently so that's a really good sign.

Everyone gets weird unexplained pains everyday that most people shrug off but us anxious people focus on them and they seem to happen more often then.

If the pain gets increasingly worse and you feel short of breath then obviously go to the ER but if they are on/off and fairly mild then take some paracetamol and put your feet up and see if the pain eases.

I know how hard it is to deal with chest pain and have racing thoughts convincing you the worst is about to happen but try and see the logical side, you were given a clean bill of health recently so the chances of you having something wrong with your heart now are slim to none.

I hope you feel better soon.

Mike you are really impatient with our replies. Your post happened in a time frame of forty five minutes. People are not always on nor do they read all the post when they are on.

Mike I am not a doctor but to be honest I think your symptoms are anxiety related.

The reason why is that your worries changed from MS, brain tumor to now heart problems.

I think when once symptom changes it probably has to do with health anxiety.

Having to say that I hope you are doing Ok now.

I get the chest pains too, I think it is all anxiety related. I also get pains on my neck and sometimes on my arms, my doctors keep telling me its normal.

Hey Mike -

There are LOTS of us on here with complaints of chest pain.

I've had it on and off for almost 2 years now.  What you are describing I have experienced time and time again - along with a host of other chest related complaints.  I get a squeezing/tightening sensation right in the middle of my chest under my sternum frequently.  There are lots of non-cardiac reasons for chest pain and I have been diagnosed with them all - GERD, chostochondritis, esophageal spasms, and severe anxiety :).  Having said that, I did have a complete phsyical and appropriate testing done - including EKGs, blood work, and finally, a nuclear stress test.

I could hear the stress coming through your posts - trust me, I understand how scary it is.  Definitely get your doctor to take all necessary steps to rule out any physical issues, but please know that there are MANY of us that have been in your shoes...
