My Chest Feels Heavy And Weird. Almost Tight In A Way. Why? Could It Just Be Stress

it feels tight and heavy. it goes from being my entire chest to just my left side. I have high anxiety and PTSD. I have panic attacks frequently and my breathing has been off. Do you think its a heart condiion or simply just stress and a pulled muscle? Thoughts..

Answer

Hi Palmerr,

There's always the possibility your symptoms are related to stress or a pulled muslce. However, it may also be heart related. For this reason I recommend you contact your physician to determine if an evaluation is warranted.
