I have had this same problem for about a year now... It scares me to death! My doctor did the same blood work, x-ray ect and I still have no idea what is going on. I have pain under my left arm (shoulder / arm pit area). I get a fast racing heart randomly and my left arm is known for falling asleep. I would really like to know whats going on but most of the test that are left seem to be too pricey and with the doc not thinking there is anything wrong its tough to shell out the $!

Well, I haven't talked to my doctor yet, but, I have also had occasional left arm pain and tingling, some chest pain and a racing heart beat from time to time. It scares the **** out of me too. And, like you said, it happens most to me at night. Very strange. I also occasionally, maybe once very other day, feel a few very "deep feeling" heart beats.

The main reason I haven't talked to my doctor is that I'm 18.
So, I feel like it's kind of silly for me to be having serious heart problems you know? I'm not sure. I'm not terribly out of shape, but then again.

Wow.. Male 62 yrs old...... untill recently in great relative shape..... Retiring shortly.....  But now all hell breaking out health wise.  Pain in both arms, ranging from the wrists to the shoulders.... throbbing in both arms off and on..... often at the same time..... throbbing and stabbing pain on the left side is accompanied with the pain in the left shoulder and arm, traveling to the other side. Ps. had laser surgery in both eyes,,, in the same month of July 2012, can see for many miles. The next month got Vertigo ( never had that before ). Now for the last few months  The Pain - The Pain , in both arms. Taking all kinds of meds.  Heart rate and pulse rate are those of a healthy 25 year old. No trama, don't drink ( ultimate designated Driver), Doc's not sure what's going on.. Ps.... all this when I am about to retire in Jan, 2013. I hope I make it.  Best to everyone... from Madison, Wis.
