Cause #3: Panic Attack

While many of the ailments that can affect us are the result of something physical, it is not always the case. Psychological issues or events can also affect us – not only in terms of how we think or feel but also in terms of physical sensations. One of these events is a panic attack, and such an attack may cause chest pain.

As well as chest pain, somebody that is experiencing a panic attack is also likely to experience shortness of breath, sweating, shaking, and numbness, which can be very alarming to the patient and others around them. Panic attacks are not directly dangerous and can be treated with medication and/or therapy.
