Chest Pressure.....
Nov 15, 2004
Hi all!
I was wondering if anyone ever feels that they have a pressure feeling in their chest. It is hard to explain....Sometimes when I walk around I feel like something is pushing on my chest right above the breast area. It does not feel that way when I am leaning on something or sitting down. I know that I have a lot of muscle tension because when I tense up I can feel it all through my chest and upper back....How can I get rid of this??? It is driving me insane. I also have a huge fear of anything heart related so I feel my mind makes this worse. Advice would be great. Thanks! Kaley

Are you on meds for anxiety at all?...just asking cuz if you are they may not be working for you or it hasn't had enough time to start working...as far as chest pressure if you are typically a healthy person I wouldn't fear much...but if you are that concerned about it make an appt. with your doc...who knows maybe a visit to the chiropractor would be a good thing :)...best of luck!!

Hello,
I too have had this on several occasions,
It is like there is something pushing on both my chest and back and is more noticeable when I am lying down at night.

I am not too sure what is causing this although I have noticed that I tend to have bad stomach acid / heartburn at the same time.
I believe it may probably be trapped wind or indigestion.
