Not necessarily: Chest pain is a very broad symptom, and can be related to many different disorders, some serious, and others not so serious. If the reason for being on opiates is for chest pain after chest surgery or trauma like a rib fracture, than pain can be from withdrawl of opiates.
If that is not the case, you should get checked out by a specialist. ...Read more

I have hyperadrenergic pots and am in Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal. Went to hospital with chest pain and they said everything looked okay. Vomiting, sweating, shaking, weak, cp, resting hr 90-100, ectopics. Safe?

I have hyperadrenergic pots and am in Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal. Went to hospital with chest pain and they said everything looked okay. Vomiting, sweating, shaking, weak, cp, resting hr 90-100, ectopics. Safe?

Not safe...: Pots is without a proper algorithm of treatment but benzo use, especially xanax (alprazolam) can only be problematic, short and long term. Ask for a smooth taper of Klonopin (because stopping benzos cold turkey is not safe either) with a concurrent start of an snri like cymbalta/effexor or check out this link:

Central sharp lower chest pain lasting seconds right at that central boney part. Radiates to jaw and arm and frightening. Norm stress test, EKG and holter. What else causes this?

Muscle spasm: The key here is " lasting a few seconds" the muscles in your chest can have a short lived intense spasm lasting a few seconds. It's more often on the left side of the sternum (breast bone) where the ribs meet. Can you point with one finger where pain is? Anxiety makes it worse.

Chest pain, radiating to arm, shoulder and side of neck but also into my tongue. Is tongue pain part of heart attack sign?

May be heart related: Yes! The location of radiating pain is not specific, and it can be cardiac (heart) related whenever there is chest pain - radiating or not. Whether it goes into your tongue is irrelevant - it's possibly a very serious indication that a heart attack is imminent. It should always be ruled out, so get an exam for this very soon. ...Read more
