I have anxiety issues. About 1 1/2 days ago I had a typical panic attack. Today I feel perfectly fine. I don't feel tired or dizzy. Everything is fine except for this tingling almost ticklish sensation deep in my left chest. It only came about after I woke up.

It's not debilitating but it sure is annoying and uncomfortable.


Does anyone know what this could be? Can anyone recommend a method to get rid of this?

Hi ayagh and welcome to ehealth: If you are not older and worried about a health problem, I would say to forget it...What is it?...Probably a reminder of the other day...Maybe something that is trying to work its way into your mind to worry about something...You see this is the way that Panic Attacks work...They seed themselves to make you worry and then it can be off to the races...Again, if you have a history of heart problems then check it out...Or, if you think that your mind is again playing games with you, then forget it...Take care...

I'm only 20 years old.

The thing is I wasn't worried about anything up until my chest started tingling. I'm not that worried now but I am trying to figure out what it could be.

It is most likely from your panic attack. Anxiety has a symptom of tingling feelings anywhere in your body. I get it too and I went to the doctor just to make sure. My doctor told me it's just my anxiety and that I'm healthy! Trust me, anxiety has a way of making you think something is totally wrong when it's not! You're only 20 and I'm 21. My doctor told me straight out...to start enjoying life and to stop making anxiety get the best of me! You should too! I've been feeling better since then! I still think negative here and there, but other than that...I'm slowly learning to fight my anxiety. I hope we all get better!

Anxiety
Hi, iv been having the same symptoms as you, a slight tingling feeling and sometimes a short burst of pain. Iv had my heart checked and its perfectly fine. I feel like the more I think about it the more I can notice it. Anxiety sucks take it from me Razz, but these responses are really helpful, just try to ignore it and make the best out of life. Also iv started taking a natural medicine called Veeva and it's really helpful there is nothing in it that can harm you its all natural. It reduces physical and mental stress, which will make you feel better and hopefully reduce your anxiety Smile try it out!
