Hi - I'm a 32 year old male that stays active coaching my kids sports and by working out (anaerobically) 4 times a week. Over the last 7 days I have had chest and stomach pains, shortness of breathe, and exhaustion. I am so tired. Last night I slept from 6:45 p.m. to 6:16 a.m. I never do that. I definitely feel some of the problems are anxiety driven, but it all started with the stress at work. 7 days of this and I am now miserable. I just want to sleep all of the time. I've had a lot of acid reflux the last 4 days. What can I do? Thanks.

Your symptoms do look more like stress and anxiety. However chest pain, shortness of breath and tiredness should never be ignorded and a proper cardiac work up including an EKG, an X ray of the chest, blood counts and if not contraindicated, a stress test is a must.
