Pressure and pain in chest, lasts for few minutes, physical and mental pressure. Related?

Just curious why I would feel pain and a little pressure in the center of my chest . It seems to be coming in waves, lasts only a few seconds and then comes back in about 3 minutes. This has been going on very several hours now. I do have a trigemini arrythmia that acts up now and then and I have had extreme physical and mental stress this week.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
There is no doubt that cardiac rhythm problems can cause anxiety and panic symptoms. Likewise, panic and anxiety symptoms can induce cardiac rhythm changes. The relationship goes both ways. It is important to consult a psychiatrist to discuss your anxiety and stress issues, because these can be treated and when they are treated, your cardiac status should improve. At the very least, you won't be getting high anxiety that can cause cardiac rhythm symptoms. If you do consult a psychiatrist, be sure to have the psychiatrist communicate with your cardiologist so that the two of them are on top of your medications and your symptoms and combine their efforts to help you. Do feel better!

HI lindah3j.

THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION.

YES EXTREME STRESS OR CONFLICT CAN GIVE RISE TO VARIETY PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS LIKE CHEST PAIN THIS IS CALLED DISSOCIATIVE DISORDER BUT YOUR ATTACK DURATION RESEMBLES PANIC ATTACK SO YOU SHOULD CONSULT A PSYCHIATRIST AND TELL DETAILED HISTORY HE SHOULD HELP YOU.

BYE THE WAY YOU SHOULD ALSO GO TO YOUR CARDIOLOGIST AS YOU HAVE ARRYTHMIAS AND ASKED HIM WHEATHER THOSE SYMPTOMS CAN BE DUE TO THAT.

BEST WISHES
