Need info on specific heart related symptoms, especially chest pains.

Well, I'm trying to get some information from experienced people about what exactly they experienced if they had heart related chest pains. I have anxiety problems as well, and with the new addition of this suspected Congestive Heart Failure, my anxiety has skyrocketed.

I also have congestive heart failure for 13 years now and also get a lot of chest pain and it's scary, also shortness of breath when doing physical stuff, I'm not really overweight so don't quite understand the shortness of breath unless it's also from my asthma, so confusing, I never had anxiety until I got sick but don't take meds for it, I hope you get some answers and try to take it easy, feel better

In my opinion anxiety is a temporary reaction to something and should eventually get better or completely end. But heart issues don't. I was told years ago that I only had anxiety. My heart would flip-flop and flutter when I was sitting still. So I just ignored it. Two years ago I had a heart attack. Now I have two stents in my LAD artery. If I had been diagnosed correctly years ago maybe I could have prevented what happened. If I can give any advice it is take care of yourself. Trust your own instinct about your body. See a Cardiologist. You deserve a healthy long life. God bless

Meth is real bad on your heart. I had panic attacks too but they do pass but my heart attack didn't at 38 years old 17 years ago. I had stents in my LAD. i had bi pass surgery 3 years ago. I also have CHF and end stage copd. I am a sober alcoholic and used to smoke. My advice to you is to go to the hospital and possibly another doctor. Please take care and God bless

I have chf, anxiety, asthma, mitral valve prolapse, schizo, obsessive, and sometimes bipolar. I was having symptoms of afib but blood test said no. Walking relieves some anxiety, afterwards, about 17 minutes a day, every other day. My chest and anxiety feel better. It is better to walk outside than on treadmill inside.
