Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've been experiencing episodes of chest pain lasting between 20 to 40 minutes. Due to poor eating habits and difficulty keeping food down, including vomiting, I'm wondering if these symptoms could be attributed to panic attacks.



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.



Your symptoms, including chest pain, poor eating, and vomiting, warrant a thorough evaluation.

Possible Considerations:

1. Panic Attacks:

Chest pain can be associated with panic attacks, but other causes need to be explored.

2. Esophageal Spasm:

Considering your difficulties with food, esophageal spasms could be a contributing factor.


1. Medical Evaluation:

Schedule an appointment for a physical examination and necessary tests, such as ECG and imaging.

2. Lifestyle and Nutrition:

Focus on maintaining a balanced diet and hydration with small, frequent meals.


Seek prompt medical attention, especially if symptoms are severe or accompanied by other concerns. If chest pain is severe, seek emergency care immediately.
