Question: Think it's anxiety... heavy pain in middle of chest, has gotten better when got up and walked around.. Happened a few weeks ago when they said something very hurtful... So we think pain thought to be result of treatment from adult kids not talking their mom for months... trying not to think about it seems to make it get better after a while... just want to make sure it's not something to do with her heart.

Just a deep heavy ache...

Brief Answer:
yes looks like anxiety

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Sorry to hear that. It seems more from anxiety. Pain from heart problem increases with activities. It can't improve by getting up and walking around.

She should take some anti anxiety meds which would alleviate the problem. That would also confirm the diagnosis of anxiety.

Hope this helps.
