I have a minor, but annoying kind of chest pain. I'm wondering if it sounds anxiety-related to anyone. I am anxious at times. I have refused to take an anti-depressant even though my doc has suggested it. I prefer taking Xanax .25 mg (or half of that) when I feel nervous, which isn't everyday.

I had acid reflux/heartburn in Feb that lasted 6 months, so I figured the chest pain was a result of that. 4 months after no symptoms the chest pain is back - I assumed again it was hearburn but I'm not sure. Tums don't always help.

It feels like a pinching pain in the center of my chest, near the sternum but feels more like it's in the bone or like a pinched nerve than in my esophagus. I don't seem particularly nervous about anything when it happens and it can last for hours. When I get really mad it feels better! It is more distracting than painful. I will note that I had a barium swallow and heart tests which were all normal.

Sometimes if I take a Xanax it goes away but I'm not sure if it's a coincidence. I hate self-diagnosing but I don't want to just start taking Paxil if I don't need to! Please share your opinions. Thanks!
