In brief: Actually, yes

It's amazing what anxiety can do! Have medical tests and if results are negative for back and lung problems or heart issues - it leaves anxiety as a prime suspect.
The good news will be that 1. you now know'll you are healthy in important ways and 2. CBT therapy works well for learning anxiety mgmt skills. It's a good thing!
