  • The stress can increase you heart rate, blood pressure increases, fats are released into the bloodstream for use as energy. Because of the increase in cholesterol and triglycerides in your bloodstream, there is potential for your arteries to thicken with plaque over time, which could lead to these pains in your chest/ heart when you get stressed. If this continues the pain may get worse other time. If the pain is getting worse and is really starting to bother you, you should go see a doctor.Do you only feel this chest pain when terribly upset, or also when you do some intensive workout?You should learn some techniques for controlling stress. I meditate and I learn to use certain trigger words to relax myself or expect things to turn out a certain way. In your situation, you may tell yourself to relax when you feel stressed, and expect not to have chest pain. Of course, it's not just as simple as that.Anyways, I hope this helps!
