OK, thanks for the further information ! Sorrt to hear that the CBT wasn't so helpful. As it's reputation grows, I suspect a lot of people are offfering "CBT" that isnpt actually much like proper CBT, but there's no form of registration or qualification that can help one identify the real experts from the chancers.
Any CBT therapist should have taught you, from the start, basic techniques for relaxing yourself deliberately and efficiently when you get anxious, and this should be a helpful metod for you to use.
Its important to find ways to break the vicious cycle - angina, etc, very reasonably makes you anxious - which can make the angina feel more painful and more frightening - which worsens the anxiety, and so on. SO using such methods to relax instead of tense up, can really help all round
