Panic attacks make you feel short of breath, and if your heart rate becomes really rapid could make you feel like you are having chest pains. Your heart is probably OK, but you really need to see your doc to control the anxiety and panic attacks. Getting a handle on the anxiety will probably make the chest pains stop and you will feel better in the long run. I hope this was helpful.
