Chest pain and left arm pain

I have chest and left arm pain whenever I consume even half a tea spoon of Caffeine,and sometimes out of the blue as well, I have done 2 CT scans, 2 stress tests (one Echo stress test), blood test for cholesterol , all came negative , but I have experienced shortness of breath , pain on my left arm , chest pain,tiredness, it all goes away when I take 1 or 2 320 Aspirin, it’s been like that for the past 2years , please give me your advice on what you think my condition is and how I can treat it?

    could it not just be sensitivity to caffeine or maybe a stomach thing, you've already had multiple multiple tests done so it doesn't look like it's the heart

      thank you for your reply, u have a good point , wht is scaring me is i have experienced all the symptoms of a heart problem, Chest pain, left arm pain, shortness of breath, tiredness, and it all goes away when I take my Aspirin, so it feels like there is more to it than a caffeine sensitivity, besides I have consumed caffeine all my life this problem only starts two years ago , out of the blue , that is why I’m confused, I do appreciate your reply and I will also take any other suggestions u may have, thank you.

      yeah that seems odd that it's instantly relieved by aspirin. Might be worth getting a cbc done to make sure your platelet counts are fine. Also since aspirin thins your blood and that's what relieves your symptoms getting a d-dimer test to make sure you dont have blood clots could be an option as well. With all of those tests on your heart I just can't see it being anything directly related to it. Since they all came back normal. Maybe ask for an mri or angiogram. But the tests you already completed would have showed something abnormal and that would have required further tests.

      one thing I forgot to mention was, both times when I have a CT scan and after they injected me with the fluid that glows my blood vessels, I will be able to consume caffeine for 2 - 3 months with no sign of a heart problem , I am not really sure if this provides additional insight to understand my issue.

    Hi!Thanks for sharing the information.It sounds like signs of angina, a heart problem, that should be eliminated as a possibility, ASAP. It is constant, that’s not likely, but if it happens after stress, physical or mental, it would indicate it’s the heart. To know more about heart health go to the link:https://www.cardiacrhythm.in/

      Thank you very much , around 8 months ago I have actually wore the cardiac rhythm for 14 days, and the result was, some irregular hear bits here and there but over all nothing serious , my doctor have previously suggested I may need to have a Coronary angiography procedure done , I hope it would be enough to detect what my issue is, thank you again , I do appreciate your input.
