COVID 19 & anxiety: Get urgent care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, marked persistent chest pain/ pressure or new onset confusion. Fatigue and chest tightness are common symptoms with COVID 19. You didn't say how long you have had COVID. If medical causes for your "attacks" have been ruled out - please consider working with a therapist to help manage your anxiety.
