muscle spasm feeling in chest????

Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone has ever experienced a feeling like a muscle spasm in your chest area. Mine happens in the middle of my upper abdomen closer to my chest. I also get a sharp pain that lasts a few seconds in the same area. It scares the bejesus out of me and I start having a panic attack right away. I was told it could be acid reflux or something. That just doesnt make sense to me. It feels like it is a very fast pounding heart beat for maybe 5-6 beats but with a different feeling. Does anyone else experience his?? i am scared.

Perfectly normal for anxiety victims. I have been dealing with the same thing over and over again. Also for irregular heart beat and calming affects, Magnesium does wonders

Holy, thanks for responding. I was getting nervous that it wasnt a normal thing . I kind of figured it is a "normal" thing for anxiety sufferers, but just wanted to make sure I was not the only one. I tend to get muscle twitches/spasms alot, all over my body, but the chest area just scares me. Thanks alot, I might try the magnesium.
