For 4 months now I have been suffering with chest pains. When it started it was just pains in my chest, but then it began to spread to my arm, neck, back and I even had a numb/tingling sensation around my face.
I have seen a few different doctors and have had various opinions including muscular pain, trapped nerves and anxiety but I am terrified that something is wrong with my heart. I've had loads of ECG's which have been normal, blood work and chest x-Ray all fine. The only thing that was picked up was a possibility of SVT, this was after I suffered my first (and only) panic attack 4 months ago and my heart rate was very high. Since then though my heart rate has been quite low and on one of my trips to a&e they told me that I had an athletes heart rate and disagreed with my doctor that I had SVT. I am a 25 year old female, very slim but definitely not athletic! In recent weeks I have also suffered a few palpitations and am finding myself overly aware of my heart beating. I'm due to get a 24hr holder monitor fitted in a few days so hoping that can put my mind at rest a little, but just wanted some reassurance from people that may have gone through something similar and can help me believe that there is nothing wrong with my heart. Thanks
