A 16-year-old female asked:
How long is chest pain from anxiety supposed to last? i've seen websites say only as long as the anxiety lasts but i've had pain for days.

Anxiety can share: An anxious person can also have other problems - some that are purely physical. So, you may have a chest cold or something else - even a pulled muscle or internal bruise. Also, you may have formed a sensation habit. Not that you want chest pain, but that it's become chronic and meaningless. See a doctor for an eval. Best!
