    Re: Chest pain

    Thank you for your replies.
    I know people must be fed up with me constantly posting about chest pain and heart fears.
    I think that I am so tense that all my muscles in my chest and back are just going into spasm, which is throughout the day but worse at night.
    I have to protect my parents and cannot get medical help at the moment.
    Im really trying to tell myself I had an ecg a few weeks ago and also two ecgs in the summer when I had chest pain.
    I feel trapped in a nightmare.

    I think it's pretty clear by this point that there's nothing seriously wrong with your chest. I know how hard it can be to believe that, though.

    Re: Chest pain

    Still getting chest pain, quite bad at night.
    Today I’ve had chest pain and panic. Stupidly I walked up and down the stairs a few times while I was panicking, I now have sharp pains in centre of chest when moving, and I have convinced myself I have damaged my heart.
    Is this possible ???
    Iam having cbt , but with the coronavirus it’s over the phone and not really helping..

    Re: Chest pain

    I think you need to get a handle on the anxiety and then the chest pain may ease.

    You can't have damaged your heart this way.

    What are you doing in the CBT sessions?

    Trying with cbt to question my health fears and see it as a bully.
    Today my upper back is going into spasm , especially walking up the stairs and feel sure its angina. So scared..

    Angina is usually chest pain not back spams.

    Re: Chest pain

    Thank you, just getting some many back spasms at the moment. Also get chest spasms at times. I live with my elderly parents , so have been self isolating for weeks.
    My mental health is suffering and my anxiety is through the roof, I have become acutely aware of every twinge !

    Re: Chest pain

    I'm a carer too and it's very hard being holed up in challenging circumstances. It's good that you recognise that you are aware of every twinge but twinges and spasms are symptoms of tight muscles and overactive minds rather than impending heart attacks (over many weeks!!) and angina. Your parents are dependent on you and you fear imminent collapse and being incapacitated in a covid-ridden hospital etc etc....but chest and back pain are so common in anxiety disorders but you just need to believe this (always the hardest bit to achieve)
