Yes. : Anxiety can cause panic attacks where you feel like you are having a heart attack. Others just get the feeling they can’t breathe. I know a few people who faint during their anxiety atttacks and have had many normal ECGs and ER visits. You should see a therapist and consider medication for your anxiety.
