Is Your Chest Pain a Heart Attack or Anxiety?

It’s almost eerie how anxiety and heart attacks can mimic each other:

Key warning signs of a heart attack, according to the American Heart Association:

  • Chest discomfort that comes and goes or stays
  • Discomfort in other areas of the upper body
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Jaw pain—which is slightly more prevalent in women

Some key symptoms of a panic attack, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America:

  • Sense of impending doom or danger
  • Rapid, pounding heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Chest pain

Symptoms of anxiety and heart attack are similar, so get yourself checked right away.
