Hi
That is impossible to say.
Of course it can be anxiety, but that can not be assumed until you have had an examination and EKG

Your symptoms can be asthma.
They can be a partially collapsed lung.
Clot to the lung...
Heart unlikely.

In any case, as remote as these possibilities are, they need to be ruled out.

i would usually get this tightness maybe a few days after going on the beer, or if i did drugs but it would not last. i'm bit worried that it wont go away it s being there for a few days. if it was one of the things you mentioned how can i check myself. i have also being very sick with stomach cramps but these would not have any effect on my chest

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
None of this are things you can check yourself.

REflux disease can cause the lungs to spasm as well...acid reflux that is.

would a once off doing ketamine cause any of these

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
Very unlikely.
But, you don't know about heart.

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
Any drug effect can last up to two weeks.
But the answer her is that you need an exam.
