I've been having sharp chest pains since Saturday morning. I had pain, got dizzy and my left arm went numb. That lasted 10 seconds at most. I was on vacation so I went to urgent care and had EKG done that was normal and saw my PCP today who said I was ok it was probably just anxiety or skipped beat but she scheduled a nuclear stress test within next 2 weeks to make sure.
I've had 5 EKGs, an echocardiogram, and wore a 24 hour holter monitor all within the last 8 months; as well as bloodwork.
I do have generalized anxiety and panic disorder but sometimes the pains just happen out of nowhere. I also have GERD and some spine issues going on I'm seeing a neurologist for. Sometimes they can be exacerbated when I move my arm around or when I stretch my back or if I press on the area but 90% of the time they just come for no good reason. It can also happen in clusters. I can have it for days or a week and then not for weeks or months.
It's at the top of my left breast mainly but can happen in different spots on my left side.
It's been doing this off and on for months. Can it really be anxiety?
Any input would be appreciated. Thank you!
