3 years on and off. Palps, chest pain, left arm and jaw pain. Which then spreads to left calf, groin, left leg, foot. Loads of investigations. Ideas?

Vague: I would assume that you have had plenty of tests. Left arm and jaw pain usually signals some type of heart or impending heart issues. The other symptoms may reflect some circulation problems. Tough to try and figure out without going to some well known hospital/medical settings like Mayo Clinic, etc. ...Read more

Could I have micro vascular angina? I'm 25 and when stressed or sometimes resting I have pain chest, left arm, jaw and neck and back. Can last all day

Could I have micro vascular angina? I'm 25 and when stressed or sometimes resting I have pain chest, left arm, jaw and neck and back. Can last all day

Not angina: Chest pain that lasts over 30 minutes and is not a heart attack: is NOT coming from the heart. The operative word is "stressed" and that is where you at age 25, should concentrate. Be sure this is not anxiety reaction or panic attack that can be as life changing and serious as a heart attack. Get help. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it typical for cardiac pain heart pain, left arm pain, jaw pain to come and come throughout the day&night? 2012/2013 cardiac tests neg.

Yes: Heart pain can certainly come and go, but coronary disease is almost unheard of at age 23. The best test to truly eliminate coronary artery disease is a catheterization, which should be done even if stress test is negative IF symptoms persist, AND there is no other reason, such as spasm of the esophagus, reflux disease, costochondritis, etc. AND clinical picture is appropriate. Hope this helps! ...Read more

No chest pain, left arm tingly, jaw hurts a little after 20 min of cardio. Can it be my neuropathy? Or cannot be something else? Heart test all good

Maybe: My question would be what are you doing with your arm and jaw while exercising? Using arms (perhaps elliptical, ergometer, or rowing machine) may bring out tingling. Also hyperventilation (would expect both hands). Clenching jaw, or jarring from running, may bring out jaw pain. If you have already been tested for heart problems and don't have any big risk factors, I would recommend analgesics. ...Read more

Pain in my chest, left arm, collarbone, jaw, elbow, wrist, and ribs, and burping constantly. Been to ER 3 times in 4 monthes, EKG, blood test, chest xray all clear each time. I'm 25, female, mother of two. One doctor diagnosed GERD, but omeprazole is not

Stay the course: Continue to go to your doctor and give your medication some time to work. Call your doctor and tell him or her that your omeprazole is not working. Ask for a referral to a Gastroenterologist and to a Cardiologist. Try to stay calm, sometimes a complex problem may require more than one visit before the physicians work through a differential diagnosis, order tests, and optimize your medication. ...Read more

I get pain in my heart, left arm and left jaw. 3 years FULLY investigated by cardiologists. But it's definitely not in my mind. What else could cause?

Pains...: Assuring you definitely had the heart investigated by cardiologists, it could be nerve related-meaning the nerve that innervates those areas is irritated or inflamed in some way, causing the pains. Anxiety is always a possible cause too. See and work with your Primary Care provider to get to the possible answer and treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it normal to get left jaw pain and left arm pain during a panic attack?

Is it normal to get left jaw pain and left arm pain during a panic attack?

Sure but see doctor: Sure. Panic attacks results in massive neuronal discharges and just getting the message to the brain sometimes requires alternate nerve paths that come from different areas of the body. I would just make sure that you do not have any underlying undiagnosed heart condition before truly relying on this diagnosis. See a physician and describe symptoms. ...Read more
