Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. You are having symptoms of angina. Its a disease of heart due to reduced blood supply to heart muscles which can be alleviated by several factors like stress or exercise. In majority of cases pain relieves on itself on rest. You must reduce the mental stress, you can also take sublingual GTN tablet at the time of pain. But you should visit a cardilogist to reduce further progression of disease. Wish you good health.

Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
The answer to this question lies in understanding the concept of "mind-body" relationship. For example, when someone is appearing for an important examination, he/she may experience palpitations, trembling, sweating, abdominal discomfort, breathing problems and many other physical symptoms. In this case we realize that these problems are due to anxiety in the mind. The same holds good for chest pain which develops following excessive worrying or stress.

There are many ways of dealing with such problems. If stressful situations can be avoided, then anxiety will automatically disappear. In todays world, however, it is difficult to remain stress free. Therefore, adopting a healthy lifestyle with proper time management and relaxation, along with positive approach to life can help if the anxiety is mild. For more severe problems, it is better to take professional help.
