Pre-heart attack symptoms or pinched nerve?
I'm a 20 year old woman with chronic anxiety and fatigue. Over the past several weeks my body has been extremely uncomfertable following the loss of my grandfather and hospiitalization of my father.

Over the past few days specifically I've been experiencing
1. sharp stabbing pains in my chest under my left breast
2. pain in my back (worse after taking a deep breath)
3. and shooting pain into my arm
4. joint pain in my wrist
5. issues brought on by anxiety disorder (ie. the shakes, and jaw clenching)


I went to the doctor on friday about pain and tingling in my left leg. She dismissed it as a pinched nerve in my back. I have been experiencing back pain,

I'm wondering if a pinched nerve could be causing the pain in my chest, back, arm, and joints

My blood pressure, weight, and bloodwork came back healthy after seeing my doctor on friday. And i'm not experiencing any shortness of breath or irregular heart beat.... just stabby pains through the chest and sometimes some arm pain

what do ya'll think

Nothing you describe sounds like a heart problem, and being young and female make that possibility more than unlikely.

However, you are clearly aware of your susceptibility to anxiety, as well as its relationship to death and illness in your family.

I think you would be much more comfortable if you talked about these issues with a specialist who treats anxiety.  You only have to ask your regular doctor for a referral.
