Pain Management: Complaints of anxiety and chest/arm pains can be purely a muscle involvement however your complaints should be taken more seriously because they may represent conditions involving your heart. I would recommend to you that a full evaluation by your primary treating physician take place to assure you have no associated cardiac or other serious involvement in your case.
