Doubt heart disease: Stranger things have happened, but given ur age, I doubt u have heart disease (i.e., cholesterol build-up). Perhaps an old injury to ur neck or spine or shoulder cd be playing a role (play any sports?); alternately, a neurologic or inflammatory condition cd cause it. U shd c a doctor & relay ur symptoms. Keep a log of when & where u get pain, what u r doing, how long it lasts - it'll help w/ cause ...Read more

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Yes: As tingling in arm is constant, and worsens with change of position, my best guess would be nerve compression within the shoulder. Breathing deeply is like the positional change, it puts further pressure of the nerve as the lungs fill with air and compress anatomy upwards into the nerve compression site. See an orthopedist. ...Read more

Bp 120/135. Shortnes of breath. Complete numbnes of left arm. Tingling in my extremities. Dreaming sensation. Disoriented. But all symptoms lasted ?

Bp 120/135. Shortnes of breath. Complete numbnes of left arm. Tingling in my extremities. Dreaming sensation. Disoriented. But all symptoms lasted

?

120/??: Not sure what your BP is since 120/135 is impossible. Tingling, dreamy feeling disorientation suggests hyperventilation but a toxic drug exposure could do it too. Numbness of the left arm, if brief, is most likely a compression neuropathy - so long as it resolves with movement. These are my immediate thoughts - if persistent, see your doctor. ...Read more

I think I am having a panic attack/ after affect 3 hours or so. I had sudden numbness in left arm/tingling. can talk fine, can raise arms. no weakness?

Acute Anxiety: I feel empathy for your condition. Having sudden numbness in left arm/tingling is causing panic feeling in you. Panic attack is period of intense fear with at least 4 of the following symptoms: Palpitation, sensation of shortness of breath, feeling of choking, chest pain, feeling dizzy or faint, numbness or tingling, seating, fear of going crazy, fear of dying Go to ER, and see a Psychiatrist ...Read more

Had tests in feb2014: stressecho,ecg,echo all normal; calcium score 0.5; chest xray normal. Bp130/80, nape pain and left arm tingling. Cardiac still?

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. ...Read more
