Yes, go to the dr: If you have never been evaluated for a medical condition that could be causing your symptoms. Moving forward you can consult with a cognitive behavioral therapist.

First get evaluated by a physician. If your physician thinks there is nothing wrong with your physical health, then a cognitive behavioral therapist would be of help.

Complicated: 20's female with chest pains, shortness of breath, sweating, and headaches has to be concerned for mitral valve prolapse, medication side effects, hyperventilation, panic attacks, POTS, hyperthyroidism, and other concerns. A doctor is needed to sort this out.
