Upper chest and arm pains when I get angry
« on: May 16, 2014, 08:53:50 PM »
When I get really mad or emotional, my upper chest and left arm start to hurt. I've had a few stress tests and other heart tests over the years and they've always come back showing no problems.

I can't help but think that something more serious is going on. But I am a non-smoker, in good physical condition, and I think because those tests have always come back looking good the doctors don't consider me a high-risk case.

This gets really scary sometimes. Has anyone else had this, or have ideas on how to deal with it?

For a while, when I'd get really upset and panicked, my chest and arms would go numb.  Luckily that seems to have stopped.  If your tests showed no problems, your heart is probably fine.

I hope someone has some insight on this. I experience it too...with any strong emotion. Even when I'm talking about something I am passionate about. Makes me feel like I have some kind of angina..at 24!
