It could also be nerves, tendons or muscles. I had that for awhile, couldn't even sleep at night 'cause I couldn't get comfortable. Went to physical therapy and that cleared it up. As for your heart, how long has it been since you've had a physical? Your cholesterol OK? Are you active? Eat decent food? Your arm - any swelling or discoloration, tingling in the hand? These are all things the doc might ask you.
