Went grocery shopping. Carried many light groceries in my arms against my chest. Middle chest got hurt and still has some pain. What's the problem? Heart?

Chest pain, arm numbness, doctor did a physical and took BP and pulse. He said it's most likely a nerve pinch because my heart sounds well...
? other tests?: At 18 you are at low risk for a heart problem but I have seen pericarditis in younger kids with similar symptoms. An ekg and/or cardiac enzymes would rule out most issues that combine arm numbness with chest pain. Without the arm numbness I would consider heartburn/reflux more likely. However having a more extensive history with timing/duration/activities & exam would allow a more thorough answer. ...Read more

Who says it isn't: Who says it isn't heart related. How long have you had this. Is this acute? Evet though you are young if you have not had an evaluation then heart needs to be ruled out.

Stress test, echo, 24-monitor all norm. Cardio Said heart is not cause. Should I move on even if I still have on and off pain in chest/arm months later? 29
Move on: Your heart has been ruled out "Theresa" but that doesn't mean there isn't another cause of the pain. See your primary care doctor and ask to have other avenues explored. The 2 most common non-cardiac causes of chest pain are GI problems and various forms of arthritis and rheumatism. The fact that you have a healthy heart doesn't negate your not feeling well, so investigate other possibilities. ...Read more

My Dr, Er dr, and cardiologist said it's not my heart. But I still have chest tightness and feel like I cant get full breath with weird arm feeling.
Anxiety: You carry your stress in your chest. These muscles get fatigued. You breathe differently when this happens and this is what causes the sensations you are feeling. You do not need a Cardiologist or a visit to the ER. You need to manage your stress better. Your family doctor or your therapist can help. ...Read more

Cannabis psyche: Cannabis can be the gift that just keeps on giving. You may wish to consider seeing a psychiatrist at this point. Possible effects of marijuana: anxiety, depression, fear, panic, delusions, hallucinations, losing touch with reality, inattentiveness, short-term memory problems, disturbances of thought processes. You might feel tired, have poor concentration & slowed reaction times. ...Read more
No chest pain, left arm tingly, jaw hurts a little after 20 min of cardio. Can it be my neuropathy? Or cannot be something else? Heart test all good
Maybe: My question would be what are you doing with your arm and jaw while exercising? Using arms (perhaps elliptical, ergometer, or rowing machine) may bring out tingling. Also hyperventilation (would expect both hands). Clenching jaw, or jarring from running, may bring out jaw pain. If you have already been tested for heart problems and don't have any big risk factors, I would recommend analgesics. ...Read more
Pressure across chest. Arms feel worked out. Body aches. NormEKG, stress, echo, 24holt weeks ago. Age28.No Fam Hist. Non Smoker. Still heart or anxiety? 85BPM
Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health
and... the rare cases of sudden death due to heart causes:
Hypertrophic heart... big heart on echo/ekg
abnormal wiring...easily seen on ekg
These are far rarer than car accident deaths and slightly more common than lightning and elevators. BUT
tests make it LESS likely than that. ...Read more

Had EKG and chest xray done and everything was perfect. But I am still having sharp aching pain in my whole left arm and elbow. Heart??
Why are the 'blue' veins in my arms/hands/chest suddenly much more visible? Heart checked last year, and blood test just two weeks ago, all clear.
Positional: When you place your arms and legs lower than your heart, they fill and become prominent. When they're above your heart, they collapse and appears as "streaks." Also, when you're well tanned, they're less visible. AS your tan fades, you see them better. Darker veins are NOT a sign of disease! ...Read more
For 2wks had chest and left arm pain went cardiologist said anxiety only did EKG. Now still 15 days later left arm tingles. .. Afraid of heart attack?
Anxiety or Nerves?: You are at low risk statistically for heart disease, unless you have strong family history of heart attacks. If you are a heavy smoker or use drugs like cocaine or methamphetamine, you may have increased risk. But anxiety can produce these symptoms -- see a psychologist who uses CBT therapy, can helpl!

Having pains that start in the chest, feels like my heart, goes into throat and down left arm. CT scan good?
Maybe...: Chest pain that radiates into the throat, neck, jaw, or arms should be evaluated with heart disease - and other causes - in mind. You will likely have an EKG, oxygen level, and blood tests done first. If these are concerning, you may have more tests, including angiogram to look for blockages in the blood vessels that feed the heart. Get evaluated! LGromkoMD ...Read more
EKG, heart enzymes, chest xray, and stress test ALL GOOD. 21, active. Occasional chest cramp/arm pain. Can I rule out a heart issue?
Almost: Can rule out a heart issue. It would be nice if you also had an echocardiogram to rule out mild mitral valve prolapse which can give similar symptoms that you are describing. If echo comes normal then I would think anxiety or acid reflux from your stomach could be the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more
