Obviously, I cannot rule out something as dangerous as a cardiac cause for your chest pain over the internet, but according to your description this chest pain is probably not secondary to coronary disease. I think what you are describing is just a panic attack.
Please, try to contact your doctor to see whether or not a very small dose mild tranquilizer would be a good idea at this point.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
