Chest pains and night sweats
Last night I started having some chest pains, they didn''t last long though. After I had gone to bed I woke up during the night dripping with sweat. My job is stressing me out a lot so I''m not sure if it could be anxiety attacks that I''m having or if it''s something else. Please advise

It is most probably due to anxiety but you will however, have to consult your doctor for medication. I also suggest that your doctor refers you for a stress ECG to evaluate your heart, in order to exclude heart disease.
