For the past two weeks now I am having very extreme pain from my left upper back area to under my left arm pit and then stretching over into the left chest area. Am very worried, did blood work and stress test, came back with high chloresol. Can you please help
Do you work out alot? Did you mention this pain to your primary care doc? Perhaps you pulled something? It sounds as if you are worried that you may have an attack of some sorts. In women, heart attack don't manifest themselves as directly as pain over the chest area. You may feel tired and nauseous. Nausea is usually the number one symptom in women having a heart attack along with neck soreness/stiffness.
I strongly suggest that you go back to your doc and express your concerns. You're not imagining this pain and you need more answers than anyone here can give you.
