Chest pain below left nipple, Left arm pain. Various painful twinges going on 2yrs. ECG/blood/X-ray/ct/stress test/gastro scope/ultrasound ok, ideas?

Not heart

Open-uri20140107-8547-1pn1q5g
This sounds like musculoskeletal pain. At age 26, it's not likely to be your heart. With pain in your left arm and chest, it could be coming from your neck. There are nerves that exit your spinal cord through the vertebrae in your neck. If these nerves are compressed, they can cause arm pain. Do you do repetitive motion (like weight lifting?) Left handed? Observe what you do with your body!

Normal

some of the blood drawn during the needle stick leaked inside your skin, its ok and it happens, unless there is a hard lump or extreme pain then you should be ok, it will disappear just like any other bruise

Dr. Paul Kovatis answered:

How common is it to get a thrombosis in your arm after a routine blood draw?

Common

Blood
The vein that is punctured for the test will often clot and form a lump of sorts.-- especially if the phlebotomist missed vein or went thru it with the needle. This is a superficial vein, usually not serious and responds to heat and rest. IF there is redness or persistent pain, see and MD. Not all clots are serious but, when in doubt , of course please please see an MD Feel better

Can checking yout blood pressure too often &#40;20x per day&#41; cause arm pain or nerve damage. Occasional arm pain no other symptoms.

Not unless

162409268
you are pumping the cuff up too high, and or leaving it on too long at each reading. In hospital settings patients get their blood pressure checked often with automatic cuffs. Question why you are checking yours at home that often though? Have the dr. treat you BP and usually only a few readings at certain times are necessary, that you can bring to the dr. for data. Anxiety worsens it.

Left arm pain & strong or fast heart beat that come and go did echo ecg stress blood tests everything ok what can cause the pain Im obese 23 y old?

Pinched nerve

Open-uri20130306-31484-1r7yq8x
Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question.

I have Left arm pain radiates to hand. Hand veins bulge more than right. Blood clot? Negative d dimer. Ultrasound on legs came back negative as well.

Upper Arm DVT?

Open-uri20130414-25193-1e4i8tq
This can be a sign of an upper arm deep venous thrombosis (DVT). These are somewhat unusual in a young lady, so certainly I agree with the possibility of a thoracic outlet syndorme (TOS), particularly a sub-entity of it called "effort thrombosis" or "Paget-Schroetter Syndrome." This is often associated with swelling of the arm, bulging veins, and a feeling of arm heaviness.
