pain in the chest & up the side of the neck

My doctor has told me that i have an errhythhmia, she said that i have an extra beat which was picked up on a 24 hour heart trace. The problem is that i also get pain in my chest at the same time' some times very severe, i am wait to go & have a treadmill test. Sometimes the pain is so bad that it goes down my arm & up the side of my neck, this can't be normal! About 4-5 years ago i was rushed into hospital with severe chest pain' i stayed in for only 12 hours, the hospital doctor said that i had an inflafed heart linning.Then 3 years ago i had a massive attack of something in my sleep, i woke up feeling sick, no balance at all, double vision in one eye, couldn't speak very well, my mind seemed slow , tingling in my arms & legs. I  was very ill & couldn't get out of bed for three weeks & lost over a stone in wieght. since then i have had bad eye problems' mainly double vision, i still get pain in my chest & up the side of my neck just like five years ago, i feel like i have been let down by the hospitals & doctors where i live. I have finely been to see eye specialist at the moorfields eye hospital in london, they seem very intersted in my attack!! I think i had a stroke' & the damage to my sight was caused by a blood clot!! What do you think?

many thanks
