I am 21 years old female, no medical problems in my family

Customer Question

I am 21 years old female, no medical problems in my family histories. A few days ago as I was travelling to work, after I jumped off the tube I started feeling a dizziness and got panicked instantly. No other physical symptoms, only dizziness and then panic as I thought something bad is happening. After 2 days I got my period, it may be related to that?Sometimes I get some chest pains as well but they don t last more than a second and are located in different sides of my chest. I went to a doctor to check my heart 2 months ago because I was getting palpitations and after the checks they said that everything looks normal. I went to a therapist as well to deal with these anxiety and panic attack problems. Sometimes I think that I am just too body aware and confuse the symptoms to something serious but they actually come from anxiety.

That helps a lot, I am creating worst case scenarios apparently. As so, do you consider these symptoms to be actually anxiety related? I am referring to the chest pain that lasts one second in different sides of my chest as well
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 12 days ago.
