In brief: See below.

Sometimes when you have a lot of anxiety, you can experience chest pain and palpitations.
Many people think they really have something wrong w/ their heart, when, in reality, it is a temporary phenomenon that will go away when you anxiety decreases. Meds that increase serotonin in your brain such as ssris can decrease anxiety.
