What causes chest pain and rapid heart rate during a panic attack?

I don't have racing heart or hyperventilation during my panic attacks. Only uncomfy chest, pvcs, dizzy & short of breath. Cardiac r/o. Possible?

Panic can be unique: First, i hope an actual medical condition has been ruled out through history/testing/labs. Second, your symptoms sure sound like panic attacks so consider using Klonopin instead of xanax which will be harder to stop.
