Anxiety can cause all sorts of aches and pains. You are worrying about a heart attack so it is natural you focus on anything that may be a symptom of that. Such as left arm pain.
A more likely explanation is that you may sleep on that side and have your arm under your head. I do that, withmy right arm and have forever. Some days it's quite sore and aches. But I know what it is.
Not saying that's your problem, just something to consider.
What you describe could be a panic attack. They can be quite devastating, sausing us to struggle to breathe, have our hearts feel like they will burst out of our chest and really just bring our bodies to the edge of it's strength.
Best thing to do though is see a doctor and find out for sure what's going on. A doctor can eliminate a number of posible problems, including heart issues through tests. If it is a heart problem then they can identify it and help now.
Yes i will go to the doctors after christmas as that will be the only time i can get an appointment , i have spoken to doctors and they told me it wasnt of concern and that i would be absolutelty certain if i was suffering a heart attack.
Im sure its anxiety or possibly my implant , as i do need to sort this out and nip it in the bud , on the slight possibility it could be serious
Hey, Im also young (22) and I have chest pain, left arm pain, and anxiety as well. I even had my gall bladder out 6 weeks ago because thats originally what the doctors said the chest pain was coming from. (I did have gall bladder sludge, which apparently can cause that) but now that its out the pain is still there. Ive been in and out of doctor's offices and had ekg's and everything was normal. Im not sure what it is, but being a psych major I know that the mind is powerful and if you obsess about something enough, you can actually make your body create the pain. I was relieved to hear you get your pain in exactly the same place as me (under your left breast). Is it an unbearable pain thats like an intense ache? It really does feel like a heart attack and it is scary, but we have to convince ourselves we are too young for this. Im going to the doctor next week to continue to have things ruled out, so I guess you should do the same, so that when it happens you can rest assured that theres nothing wrong but anxiety.
