I have been having periods of anxiety where my chest hurts and heart beats fast. What can I do to stop this?

Thorough eval. By md: First be evaluated by your primary care physician. There are causes of chest pain, tachycardia, and anxiety that are not panic attacks, for example, pheochromocytoma, hyperthyroidism, cardiac arrhythmia. After other diagnoses ruled out, SSRI-type medications like Lexapro, (escitalopram) and Zoloft are very effective for panic disorder. Sometimes mitral valve prolapse may contribute. A beta blocker may also help. ...Read more

One: One must always make sure that there is not a medical origin to a symptom, like chest pain. No matter how much anxiety you have, do not avoid having your doctor evaluate you for chest pain. Maybe a cardiologist needs to be involved? Your primary care doctor or psychiatrist could help you figure out how to make sure the discomfort is not imminently a medical danger.
This aside, anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and the likes, often includes physical and emotional components. You are describing some of the physical symptoms: palpitations (heart thumping), shortness of breath, tightness, lightheadedness, sweating, dizziness, etc... The emotional may include sense of impending doom, loss of control, a lot of angst, and the likes. Celexa, an ssri, is a fine medication to start with, along with some sleeping medicine (restoril). People with anxiety disorders are often very sensitive to these medicines, when they first start them, and are often the ones who have an initial paradoxical increase in anxiety at the beginning of starting the medicine. This can be helped with the klonopin (clonazepam), (clonazepam) but not always and since Klonopin (clonazepam) takes a long time to start working, you may further not reap its benefit for over an hour or more. Speak to you doctor/psychiatrist to help balance when you should be taking the klonopin (clonazepam). An example of how he may help: he may suggest lowering the Celexa for a while (e.g. 1/2 tab of smallest pill or 10 mg, or even less). Once you are on this dose for a bit, then the dose can be slowly increased. In a reverse way, taking Klonopin (clonazepam) a little more regularly and tapering off, as Celexa starts working for you, can occur. There are many ways to help.
First, make sure no real medical emergency, then clarify alternative strategies, discussing alternatives and their risks and benefits with your doctor. You are in the drivers seat, you just need a road MAP to help a little.
Good luck. ...Read more
