Cardiac Enzymes?: With the tests done that you are reporting the only thing I'd like to know to really take your symptoms out of the territory of the heart would be cardiac enzymes and the results of a 12 lead EKG. If those 2 things are normal then, any ongoing symptoms of left arm sensations would be extremely unlikely to be related to cardiac ischemia...especially if it is ongoing, 24/7 as opposed to episodic.
