Re: Chest Pressure

I sometimes have a feeling of pressure over my chest and I do get pain in my ribs occassionally too. Could you be anxious? I have anxiety problems, and as soon as it hits, i feel pressure in my chest. I take xanax to relieve the anxiety. Not knowing what it is can cause more anxiety and make it worse. Deep breathing helps to relax too. Next time you have that feeling, find a quiet place and take deep breaths to the count of 4 as deep as you can, then let it out slowly to the count of 4. Just keep doing this for a minute or two and it should help if you are anxious.
