I am not sure why this is or if it is even anxiety, Sometimes my chest will feel full and hurt for days, then I will get upset about something and cry my eyes out and its all gone. How can crying take it all away? It really is the best medicaine but it has me wondering if it really is anxiety?

I don't know why crying sometimes makes me feel better too. One of our fellow members has a signature line that says something like "we cry because we have been strong so long."

For some reason one day I decided to stop crying and I didn't cry for a long time. I was tough I could take anything.

Well then I realized how foolish that was. If things really hurt why was I withholding myself from being able to express that pain in a healthy way, so I started to cry again and I cried every time I felt hurt and it was so liberating.

I do cry when my chest hurts and it does stop hurting but I had no clue that the crying is what was helping. I just cried because I was so desperate and scared and then stopped when it stopped hurting and thought wow I didn't realize the pain was going to go away so quickly. I had No clue that it was the crying that made it stop hurting.

I read that differnt reasons for crying makes the tears have differnt taste. Sadness tastes salty. this is because tears help remove some chemicals from our system. So hence , we feel better.

Well - I am a man - but sometimes a good tear or two is quite relieving.

Maybe the chest pains are the onset of an 'anxiety attack' and the crying is a method of 'release'? I dunno ... just thinking out loud.

But every individual can only 'hold in', and 'hold down' so much, until it has to be released. Some individual 'release' in anger or rage, others release in excessive talking or business, yet others release by crying or in an artistic manner or expressive poetry. The point being, everyone must release sooner of later.
