Yes. : Anxiety can cause all of those symptoms. However, when dealing with chest pain, anxiety it is a diagnosis of exclusion. So if there is any question, get to a doctor.

Can be similar : Anxiety can cause all your symptoms and even mimic a heart attack. Do you have any symptoms while exercising? Are you having anxiety/panic attacks. Sudden episodes of loss of control. Idk much about you and if you have any cardiovascular risk factors. But, i will advice to seek doctor help. It will help you having a concrete diagnosis.
