You want to know all about anxiety & chest pains?
FIRST - STOP WORRYING! Why?
I can tell you right now that if you are experiencing anxiety chest pains, it's not a heart problem!
IT IS NOTHING SERIOUS!!
The chest pain is a symptom of an anxiety disorder... FACT!
"I had anxiety related chest pain in varying levels of intensity throughout 27 years of high anxiety and had every possible test for everything from cardiac to gastrointestinal issues, hernias, stomach ulcers... you name the test and at some point between the ages of 8 and 27, I had it! They never found anything of concern and that has been the outcome of every test for chest pains my anxious clients have ever had; in over 15 years of treating over 155,000 people." Charles Linden
Over the last years, thousands of people and most of my clients, with anxiety chest pains have been rushed to hospital in ambulances, or to the doctors with suspected heart problems, they felt short of breath, their hearts raced, they felt clammy, dizzy and scared (to name but a few symptoms) and guess what...
NOT ONE of them turned out to have anything wrong with them... except anxiety-related chest pain!
Anxiety chest pain is so common and completely harmless.
In fact, this chest pain usually turns out to be nothing more than muscle pain, indigestion and sometimes nerve pain, ALL caused by the underlying anxiety disorder.
Anxiety chest pain can be sharp, dull, in the center, to the side or all round the chest. It can extend into the neck and shoulders, round the back of the head and down into the stomach area. Anxiety chest pain can come and go, come and stay or twinge occasionally. I have heard possibly every description and variation of anxiety related chest pain there is.
I experienced anxiety chest pain too; first dull and deep... this turned out to be anxious indigestion and then later it became sharper and the pain extended into my throat and down my left arm. Sometimes it would be in my upper ribs and around my collar bone.
Then my arm would go numb or tingly!
I sometimes had pain in my arm or hand.
I was rushed to hospital and guess what... They found NOTHING except anxiety related chest pain!
Anxiety chest pains are evident in probably 80% of anxiety sufferers at some time during their disorder.
BUT I can tell you this with 100% conviction... THEY GO AWAY AS SOON AS YOU START TO REDUCE THE ANXIETY!
Obsessing about your anxiety chest pains creates anxiety, anxiety creates the chest pain and the cycle continues.
Most of my clients start to see improvement in their anxiety chest pain within hours or maybe a few days of starting my program.
As they start to understand and appreciate how anxiety chest pain develops, is formed and what it can do to us in order to produce all these symptoms, they start to make dramatic and full recoveries.
Truly, the solution works and it's so so simple.
Don't let anyone tell you that you need therapy or medication to cure anxiety chest pain... you may feel desperate and prepared to take anything to make your life easier and the anxiety more bearable, BUT trust me, medication isn't the solution.
I have treated tens of thousands of people - people just like you and I - with the same anxiety chest pains, symptoms and thoughts, the same worries and concerns.
