It means you should: Many things potentially, and its foolish to think we will know the answer without a lot more informaiton, history, physical exam, and maybe other tests.

Yesterday, my legs felt like jello, I felt slightly dizzy and nauseous with dull left arm pain and migraine. I am on my period. Is this a heart attack?

Not a heart attack: Gosh. You are only 18 and you thought you were having a heart attack? There can be a thousand different reasons for your experience.

During 48hr continuous heartmonitor had BAD palps, dizzy, chestpain, arm pain etc. But results only showed "infrequent ectopic" basically normal. Why??

Cardiac awareness: Our mind can play tricks on us-you have "cardiac awareness". Even as a cardiologist, I think I sometimes feel frequent skipping only to find that my heart rhythm is perfectly regular when I take my pulse. It happens. Be glad you don't have something more serious! ...Read more

In july had suspected DVT but it was ruled out by ultrasound and ddimer. Started having chest and arm pain with dizziness This week. Pulmonary emboli?

Needs evaluation.: It is impossible to say if your symptoms are due to a pulmonary embolism. You certainly need to be reevaluated. 85% of PE's come from the leg veins. An ultrasound done in July is not useful with new symptoms. I would repeat the venous ultrasound and you may also require a chest ct. Your symptoms may not at all be related to a PE. See your medical doctor. ...Read more
