Guest Share Post: Anxiety Induced Chest Pain
This post has been provided by Paul of AnxietyGuru.com . As you may remember, last week, one of my posts appeared on the anxietyguru site and this week I am bringing you a post written by Paul. It is my hope that we can learn from shring and reading about different perspectives on anxiety. Picture it, a nice sunny day and your sitting on a lawn chair under a big tree sipping lemonade when all of sudden you get a sharp jabbing pain in the center of your chest. You go from totally relaxed to "oh no!" in about 3 seconds. This is a very typical reaction to anxiety induced chest pain.

Breast Cancer Symptom FAQs: Lump Under Arm, Not in Breast
Q. I felt a lump under my arm, in the area of my armpit, not in my breast. So that means I don’t have to worry about breast cancer, right? A. Wrong.
