I have a similar problem. I can feel myself leaving, but it feels deeply anchored right on my solar plexus chakra. Remember to alow your consciousness to leave w/ your astral body. Push past the sensations, forget them as best you can and focus only on your goal.
I highly suggest working with the chakras to help you with astral projection. Also if you fear leaving your body (you shouldn't, nothing bad will happen), it can hold you back, and the hardest step for most is letting go. It is best to read about the astral plane and projection a lot because it can boost your confidence (even if you think you are fine, your subconsciouss mught need some confidence and could hold you back). I suggest to keep practicing and look at multiple sources for techniques in astral projection. It can take months to years to master astral projection, but don't give up because it is rewarding.
Then you should definitely work on those as well. Strengthening and opening your base chakra will help keep you safely rooted while your astral body goes off. Without a safe root, it will be harder to leave. Like, have you ever tried braiding some yarn? It really really helps to tape it down to something firm first. Weird analogy, but it just popped into my head!
The naval chakra is the seat of your willpower and courage, strengthen that to help you have the will to leave. A strong base and naval chakra will help get rid of the fear associated with leaving your body.
And the crown chakra is like the doorway to higher spiritual things. One AP technique is to leave through the crown chakra, so if your crown chakra is closed or blocked, you will have a hard time wrapping your mind around the higher spiritual concepts.
