      Hi rose, thanks for the fast reply, I was thinking that but the condition does not mention the pain or sensation I'm feeling in my left arm, or the palpations I'm having, plus would that condition come and go as it eases off a day then comes back, thankyou. X

    I've also been experiencing that for quite some time now. We actually have the same what ifs because Im also a mother of two and I'm only 28. Done with 2 ECG'S and went out fine and normal also done with my x ray and its also fine. I am still not sure what's happening to me but luckily I've come to control my palpitations. The craziest part is, I'm checking my pulse rate most of the time and its also fine.

      Hi, sorry to hear you scare having the same symptoms, has your doctor suggested any maybe causes?, and does your breast bone feel tender to touch, also I'd say mine is starting to feel like weird sensation most of the time now rather than sharp pain thou out the day , but I do still experience a couple of pains mostly at night how about yourself?, x
