    What kind of chest pains are you affected by? I have chest pains caused by costochondritis, and this helps me a lot:

    Last year I was suffering from chest pains by different causes, and I was turned inside out by medical specialist. My own family doctor attributed my problems to psychological issues, but then I more or less accidentally discovered the mist likely cause: esophageal spasm. Its acute symptoms can be confused for a heart attack, but it is not something the average doctor considers.

    My doctor says it is anxiety, but I thought it was something to do with my heart and/or high blood pressure.

    Sounds like the story of my life in the past year. Many doctors all too easily attribute somatic problems to psychological causes exclusively. Have you been examined for heart related issues? Over here in Holland they do check you out to rule out conditions of the heart. It is also possible that it is a physical problem made worse or brought to the surface by psychological discomfort. Your issues do not have to be either/or, but can also be both in interaction.

    If you have been tested for heart problems, but not for other issues, and your problems persist, it is time to ask critical questions about the causes already mentioned (Tietze/costochondritis or esophageal spasm). Another syndrome with symptoms that can be mistaken for a heart attack, is pains originating in the intercostal muscles. Some of this you can test yourself by pressing with a decent amount of pressure along the ribs or in between. Best if you let someone else do it, but not too hard, because if one presses real hard, it will hurt anyway ;-)

    If there's one thing that I think consistently makes me feel like shit, it's probably gut & anxiety related.

    People with bad diets and little exercise honestly seem healthier than me at times.

    I did have a cardiogram (or whatever the machine is called) which only established that I have "first-degree heart block" but apparently this is nothing serious and does not need to be treated. I also had my Blood tested for Hepatitis at some point - I cannot remember if was due to this specific issue, and they were probably also testing for low iron levels and similar deficiencies.

    Yes, my doctor told me that as the pain stopped (?) when I held my chest, then it probably was not a heart issue.

    Anxiety can feel like a heart attack.

    I had a PTSD attack a couple years ago and I thought I was having a heart attack. I was surprised when I was still alive after 90 seconds. I mean, if your heart stops or your aorta splits open, you really don't stay conscious for very long.

    I took three aspirins and laid down to reduce the strain on my heart, and thought about what had caused the PTSD attack. My conclusion was very enlightening.

    P.S.
    After my wife left me, I was having heart problems. (Lol. If my dance instructor had left me, I might have had foot problems.) I had a heart stress test done which showed only that I have a 5% or so increased chance of dying from some heart problems. Not enough to worry about, especially considering the longevity of my family members (immigrant grandfather excepted). I made up for that 5% by not buttering my toast and moved on.

    I drink around 10-12 cups of tea and coffee every day, which may be an issue, but I don’t think I’ve discussed it with a doctor. I suppose seeing as they frequently test my blood pressure, they would see it as a distinct issue to chest pain.
