Pain in the chest. History of panic attacks. Is it a heart related problem?

I have a pin pricking pain in the center of my chest between the breast and slightly close to the heart side, left side. I have premature heart beat and panic attack twice in the past. The pain I feel is not from the outer but from the inner. I kinda worry it is my heart. What do you think it is? is it heart related problem?

Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to health care magic

First of all consult a cardiologist for detailed evaluation and get investigations like ECG, Echocardiography etc. Once any cardiac pathology is ruled out, visit a psychiatrist for anxiety disorder such as panic disorder. With adequate treatment, you will be fine

Good Luck
