    hellool,sorry about this.what you feel is likely a panic attack since the pain comes when you are depressed or likely anxious.you have to learn how to control it and cope appropriately.this will involve behavioral modifications and proper counselling.Learn to take deep breathes when this occurs till that feeling of impending doom passes out.

    Another good thing is to Learn about panic and anxiety. Simply knowing more about panic can go a long way towards relieving your distress. So read up on anxiety , panic disorder, and the fight-or-flight response experienced during a panic attack. You’ll learn that the sensations and feelings you have when you panic are normal and that you aren’t going crazy.Also Avoid smoking, alcohol, and caffeine.Learn how to control your breathing. Hyperventilation brings on many sensations (such as lightheadedness and tightness of the chest) that occur during a panic attack. Deep breathing , on the other hand, can relieve the symptoms of panic. By learning to control your breathing, you develop a coping skill that you can use to calm yourself down when you begin to feel anxious. If you know how to control your breathing, you are also less likely to create the very sensations that you are afraid of.Practice relaxation techniques. When practiced regularly, activities such as yoga, meditation, and progressive muscle relaxation strengthen the body’s relaxation response—the opposite of the stress response involved in anxiety and panic. And not only do these relaxation practices promote relaxation, but they also increase feelings of joy and equanimity. So make time for them in your daily routine. Connect face-to-face with family and friends. Exercise regularly Get enough restful sleep(7-9hrs of quality sleep per day)
