" Yes unfortunately that happens when you're anxious. When you get anxious over that feeling it gets even worse. As awful as it feels, just remind yourself it won't hurt you and that its " that damned anxiety " again. I also get the heavy chest feeling as well. Anxiety had so many awful symptoms, but I know what it is now and can talk myself down.
