Chest Pain Problems 6 Years, 7 Months ago  
I'm a 29 male who is a long-time sufferer of panic and anxiety. I take 225 mg of Effexor daily and have .5 mg Xanax pills for an as-needed basis. The last 2 weeks I've been in agony dealing with daily chest wall pain, and I'm getting more panicked because I can't figure out what's wrong with me.

It's a tightness/pain that flares up at certain times every day and the bones on my ribs and sterum get sore to the touch from it. It feels at times if someone is sitting on my chest and it has often gotten very excruciating in pain.

I've been to urgent care, the ER, a chiropractor, and my primary care doctor. Blood pressure and pulse are normal. An EKG of my heart is normal. Multiple chest x-rays were normal. I even had ex rays done of my abdomin to make sure I wasn't constipated or anything. I've had blood tests done to check organ functions and enzymes and still have no idea why everyday I have these constant chest pains. Every morning I wake up and am panicked about when my next flare up will be.

I don't smoke, rarely drink, and no one in my family (mom, dad, aunts/uncles) have a history of heart attacks or problems. I do have a high stress job, but I don't remember strain my chest to cause the pain I've had the last week and a half.

Anyone have any advice or experience anything similar?

I responded to this same post over in Panic Attacks.

So all I'll say here is that this is a pretty clear sign of Hypochondria - so welcome!

I hated thinking I was a hypochondriac. I was sure I was really just about to die.

That was 20+ years ago.

So, I guess its really okay to be a hypochondriac, isn't it?

Re:Chest Pain Problems 6 Years, 7 Months ago  
Thank you all for your support. After 2 days of Vicodin and a topical Lidocaine ointment (for the burning on the surface) my chest pains completely dissappeared and haven't returned yet. Maybe the piece of mind after 2 ER visits plus the pain meds were enough, but I'm glad I survived.

Re:Chest Pain Problems 6 Years, 1 Month ago  
When you have these episodes, your internal chest muscles tighten up, and (if severe) you are usually left with several days of soreness - for those of us with hypochondria, this only exacerbates the situation. Getting a good few days of some muscle relaxant (some stretching as well) can help to clear this up.

Re:Chest Pain Problems 3 Years, 8 Months ago  
I just recently delt with issue with an ER visit and an overnight stay for a full cardio eval and blood panal. I've been dealing with panic and anxiety for over 13 years and every year its gets you in ways you that get harder and harder to deal with. With two days of tightness of chest and panic attacks I finally admitted myself. Thinking the worst, chest xrays came out good. Overnight heart observation was good and I actually passed my stress test. If any of you have ever had one you know how brutal they are. Along with my anxiety meds I already take they put me on a beta blocker and baby aspirin. Chest pain is gone but I'm still a little anxious right now. I think everyone who deals with our panic and anxiety issues and has consistent chest pain should have a full cardio eval.i didn't want to do it and was in tears but it rules out alot of factors. My 2 cents.
