What does it mean if you get left arm pain during attacks of svt?

? warning sign: Many patients experience vague chest pain with SVT however any symptom that may represent cardiac ischemia (angina) should be evaluated. Think about it this way. Stress testing identifies blocked arteries in the heart by increasing the heart rate to uncover problems with the blood supply. With svt, the heart is essentially undergoing a stress test- if blocked arteries exist, symptoms may develop.

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.

I have left arm pain. They go away for a few seconds but come back and it seems to get worse. What could possibly be wrong?

Get evaluated: There are many causes of arm pain. First eliminate causes that could take your life, such as a heart attack. Once you eliminate the "bad stuff", you can go about a more careful diagnosis and treatment plan. Other common causes of arm pain include pinched nerve in your neck, shoulder problems, etc. I suggest you see your primary care provider, or go to an er depending on complaints.

Is weakness, tingling and pain in left arm normal during and after heartburn? Heartburn isn't frequent, but arm pain, weakness and tingling is new.

Focal Weakness: Focal weakness and pain in your arm cannot be related to heartburn. It most likely is resulting from your neck and possibly the herniated disk, but I really would need more information to provide a more definitive answer.

No: 24 year olds don't have heart attacks unless they use Cocaine or have diabetes (and then, it's still rare). It sounds like you had non-cardiac pain. Many things can cause left arm pain; in your age group, the first 3 diagnoses are: muscle ache.
