Re: chest pains and fast heart rate
My first panic attack was actually in the middle of the night. I woke up with this weird feeling in my chest, and then it started hurting. I was so scared that I was having a heart attack...in fact, my husband rushed me to the ER that night. As it turns out, it was just a panic attack...thank goodness. So yes, I don't think that you have anything physically wrong with you. It sounds like a classic case of an anxiety attack. Going for a check-up might be good....just to give you piece of mind, and to know for sure that there's nothing wrong.
