Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation.

Why do I get chest pains when my heart test come back normal such as ekg and stress test and ultrasound on heart. What other tests should I have?

You gave the answer: There are at least 15 different things that can cause "chest pains" other than your heart or ischemic heart disease. You indicate in your history that you have painful joints and arthritis and joint pain. It is highly likely that one of the more than 20 joints in your chest is arthritic and causing your pain.

Monitor your breathing at the onset of chest pain, and take control with slow deep diaphragmatic breathing. Smoking makes anxiety symptoms worse. Tthis could result from heartburn from GI sources, especially with fatty & spicey foods. Medications and CBT psychotherapy help anxiety. ...Read more
