My name is Charles Linden and let me first tell you that I've "BEEN THERE!" - for 27 years I suffered just the same way!
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 16 years of treating over 200,000 people.
I was rushed to hospital so many times and guess what? They found NOTHING 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, tension 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.
Chest pains can extend into the neck and shoulders, round the back of the head and down into the stomach area.
Anxiety chest pains 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.
Through my private practice, the Linden Method clients we have helped and through our residential retreats and events, I have met tens of thousands of sufferers suffering with high anxiety conditions... 99% of them also experience chest pain at some point or, in some cases, constantly.
When I had these symptoms, I would panic - I'd get on the internet and research... googling 'chest pain' and guess what I found... the same as you probably!
I always found 'catastrophic outcomes' - none of which had anything to do with me and my symptoms but caused me to feel WORSE... not only that but it would activate anxiety, sometimes a panic attack and often a compulsion to get 'diagnosed'.
Google, in fact all search engines have a lot to answer for - There is a massive amount of misinformation out there and you CANNOT diagnose yourself using the internet... you will just make things far worse for yourself...
...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.
