Weird feelings in tongue?

For the past few weeks, my tongue has felt very strange. It's not a numbness, but similar to that. I have also been having a ton of pressure on my chest and back and pain in left arm. Of course I started having anxiety because I constantly think I am having a heart attack. I went to a cardiologist who ran tons of blood test, did an EKG, ECG, and a stress test with an ECG and they all came out normal.

I am a thirty year old female who doesn't smoke, barely drinks, and is a bit overweight. Has anyone else had these symptoms or fears as a result of excess anxiety and stress? I am petrified I am going to keel over from a massive heart attack. Help!

to shanrocks

its probably all from anxiety, try some valium for say 2 weeks which will relax your muscles and see if this stops the problems

Shanrocks,
I feel like that everyday of my life....I constantly think that I am going to have a heart attack also....tons of pressure through my chest and head. It is all anxiety....untill we can completely believe that I feel that we will always have these strange symptoms....I also have weird heart like flutters...it always scares the hell out of me and then I think about it constantly and it seems to get worse....ativan does help!! Feel free to talk anytime...I always need reassurance also!

Re: Weird feelings in tongue?

Hi,
I started getting a tingling feeling in my tongue yesterday. I often have face and head tingling, but this is the first time I've had this feeling in my tongue.
I used to suffer from constant chest pressure, as well. Once I started taking a magnesium supplement it went away for awhile, but it is now back and worse than ever(along with severe head pressure, too). I'm only 24 so I know it is very unlikely for me to have a heart attack any time soon, but as soon as that pressure hits(along with left arm weakness) I really start to panic.

Anxiety symptoms are very frusterating. I can definatly relate. I hope you feel better soon. Hilery
