Anxiety and chest pain

    So i've had problems with anxiety and stress for a few years now but it has become alot more severe in the past few weeks. I already take cymbalta for depression and lyrica for the anxiety. Recently I was also put on beta blockers and valium. Over the last few weeks I have been having regular panic attacks and shortness of breath. (I'm a 21yr old student)

    Last night I went out for the first time in months and ended up having a panic attack at the club, not fun! But I dealt with it and was able to enjoy the rest of the night. I am not a big drinker and this was only the second time I drank since Christmas. Today I'm hungover as I had a little bit too much which is fine. The problem is I have severe chest pain in particular when I inhale. I didn't take valium yesterday as I knew not to mix it with alcohol and took the rest of my meds earlier in the day.

    I just wondering if I should be worried about these chest pains? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

    Seriously? You have "severe chest pain" and you're wondering if you need to get checked out? Yes, you do need to get seen to, urgently.
