Can anxiety cause chest pain and tingling? This only occurs at night right as I'm trying to fall asleep. 7 out of past 8 nights.

If you are feeling anxious it would be wise to learn relaxation techniques and speak with a psychologist as well about life issues making you anxious. ...Read more

Have tingling in chest and back. Sometime followed by chest pain or constantly hearing some sort of "ticking" inside me. What could this be? Had xrays
