As well as feeling fearful, worried and tense, anxiety can sometimes cause physical symptoms including chest pain. The chest pain is usually worse on movement and on breathing in.

The blockage of the coronary artery during a heart attack is usually caused by a blood clot.

A heart attack is often referred to as a myocardial infarction. During a heart attack, a coronary artery or one of its smaller branches is suddenly blocked. However, when your heart works harder (for example, when you are walking fast or climbing the stairs), your heart muscle needs more blood and oxygen. The narrowing is caused by fatty patches or plaques (atheroma) which develop within the inside lining of arteries. It is usually caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart muscle. Below is a brief overview of some of the more common causes.

These can be symptoms of a heart attack. This is particularly important if you are an adult and have a history of heart or lung disease. Any new, severe, or persisting chest pain should be discussed with your doctor. This leaflet only deals with the most common.
