Thank you for using Healthcare Magic
Your wife's symptoms may represent anxiety
given the circumstances however prior to concluding so, she should seek evaluation for her chest discomfort
to exclude cardiac causes. Due to your health insurance issues, I would suggest evaluation in a local emergency room. She may benefit from a short stay admission, evaluation by a cardiologist and possibly a stress test
. You should not fear the financial cost while waiting for an unfortunate event to potentialy occur. The hospital will assist with financial arrangements, charity coverage, medicaid or other means of getting her evaluation covered/paid for. You will need to speak with a a financial counselor or social worker at the hospital for details.
Take care and be well
