Elevated muscle enzyme levels and severe bilateral arm pain
I am 47 years old and for the last 4 months have been experiencing strange pain in my chest (left side to middle chest). The pains are like throbbing (like feeling my heart beating) and very sharp. This comes and goes. I also have chest tightness at times. Then, both of my arms became very weak and on a daily basis. Now the weakness is accompied by severe pain that radiates from my chest all the way down my arms into my hands. I went to see my doctor, who did some blood work, and my test came back showing elevated muscle enzymes. He wanted to do some follow-up testing but since I have no health insurance, I have not scheduled those tests. Heart disease has killed every woman on my mom's side of the family, including my mom, at age 77. The arm pain is worse in the morning but sometimes gets bad in the evenings, too. i am under a lot of stress right now, caring for a disabled husband, working a full time job, and also attending school full time. I weighed 128 lbs in Jan. but have dropped down to 123 lbs without dieting. What are elevated muscle enzymes and should I be worried about heart disease?

I'm sorry. I forgot to mention the numbess and tingling that happens occasionally along with my other symptoms. My condition is worsening and so is my pain.
