My left shoulder down to my left elbow down to my left hand hurts and tingles. Could I be getting ready to have a heart attack?
Unlikely: Heart attacks (the arteries to the heart) are not a consideration for your age and sex, unless you have other severe medical conditions. It is most likely myofascial referred pain when the tingling follows a classic path from a large muscle in the shoulder to the same arm. Massaging the muscle where it is coming from will help, posture issues or overuse problems are usually the source.See 1 more doctor answer

Probably not: Arm pain that radiates (travels to) the hand and particularly the fingers is usually not heart related, but more likely to be a pinched nerve in the neck. The is referred to as as cervical neuropahy, if it comes from the spine, or brachial neuropathy, if it comes from lower down. I've seem this happen if someone leans heavily on crutches they have been using for a sprained knee.See 2 more doctor answers

Please clarify/check: This could be heart disease, but it could be from stress also. You might have a pneumothorax as you are young, but this usually occurs in thin individuals. Your weight puts you at increased risk for heart disease, but you are young and your tests were negative. So it would be wise to see your doctor for a full work-up including what situations this occurs in and if you're under stress.

Yes, position impt: Assuming it is intermittent and is most nticable in the am upon arising, sleep position is a real possibility. Suggest using pillows to force you to sleep with er on the back or oppositie side. Play detective related to possible causes which are mechanical.

I've been experiencing severe panic attacks right before going to bed. I feel as if I can't breath, like I'm having a heart attack and will die. I also have physical symptoms such as a bad pain in my left arm and back, tingling in my hand and sweating.
Be careful: Be certain that the cause is truly a panic attack: this a "diagnosis of exclusion." first you need to be checked carefully for other, more ominous causes. See your family doc if you haven't already. If it's deemed to be panic, consider relaxation techniques like transcendental meditation, yoga, self hypnosis with or without assistance from a tranquilizer (under the direction of your doc).See 2 more doctor answers
