Heavy chest short of breath racing heart naseous headache left arm pain dizzy wento ER d d dimer 938 what's this mean?

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. From panic attacks with a bruised knee to severe blood clots in the lung and everything in between. Do you smoke? Use oral contraceptives? This is a great place to answer some questions (like "what is a pe? "), not a good place to get a diagnosis.

Chest pain, leg pain, shortness of breath, left arm pain, dizzyness, brushed lumpy rash on my arm?

Needs exam: Those symptoms could be something serious. You need to go to be seen by a physician. At your age it is unlikely to be heart but not impossible. Also the shortness of breath needs to rule out a blood clot. Also a venomous insect bite may cause symptoms. Be safe and get seen.

Left arm pain and dizziness?

See below: At your age neck pain that runs down the arm with or without spasms and heaviness sounds like a pinched nerve in the neck. This is usually caused by a protruding disc or bone spur touching one of your spinal nerves as it leaves your neck. Sometimes arm pain could be related to your heart or other conditions. See your physician soon for workup.

TAKE HEART!: Though you are only 34 years old, you had multiple cardiovascular risk factors (risk factors for heart disease and "heart attack"). These symptoms, regardless of your age, are VERY CONCERNING and need prompt evaluation. If you are having these symptoms now, go to the emergency department at once!

Left arm pain: Unlikely. You need to see a doctor immediately. As I do no know a whole lot of the other circumstances like medical history and history of the symptoms you are experiencing.

I'm having tingling in my left arm, pain in my chest and arm as well, dizziness, loss of breath, and neck pain. This supposedly isn't my heart.

I'm having tingling in my left arm, pain in my chest and arm as well, dizziness, loss of breath, and neck pain. This supposedly isn't my heart.

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. If this is a chronic problem then you need a more involved workup including musculoskeletal and neurological studies.

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?

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. On the period you could be losing more than normal amounts of blood; you could be not eating enough; it could be hot where you are and you are a bit dehydrated. The last thing on a list of a thousand possibilities would be a heart attack.

F 22 just left ER for chest pains/heart palpitations/arm pain. Everything came back normal what could be the issue? Also getting dizzy/nauseous lately

Most likely anxiety: There can be medical reasons to have the symptoms described but most often, especially in view of a negative evaluation in the er, anxiety, panic attacks or chest wall pain are the most likely causes in young healthy people.

What causes a headache to last 18 months with out stopping and also causes dizziness and severe arm pain? Thank you

18 months: I would hope that you have been evaluated by a doctor and some specialists. Sounds like you may need to see an ENT or even an internal medicine doctor. If the pain is in the left arm, this could signal a heart problem. Could also be a pinched nerve in the neck.

I'm currently feeling dizzy, chest pain, and right arm pain! What can I do for this?

Go to the hospital: Never ignore Chest Pain! There are many causes of chest pain and some can be life threatening. Do not be fooled by the right arm pain - not everyone has classic symptoms of heart related chest pain. Your symptoms may be due to several things. It is best to be evaluated to make sure they are not due to something life-threatening first.

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!

MD consult: Other symptoms aside: precipitous weight loss without explanation warrants a full medical assessment. It could be indicative of a serious condition. Best of luck!

I have right arm pain and shoulder pain and feeling dizzy or light headed?

911: I'm very concerned these symptoms may not be simply musculoskeletal in origin. I strongly recommend you get evaluated right away, and yes that means the ER. Better safe than sorry.
