I've been dealing with high anxiety for over a week now. It's all due to heart fears. I've been having palpitations more and more. I went to the cardiologist last week who said he thinks I have what is called PVC's. Nothing to worry about. However, I am getting blood work done and an echo stress test but not until next week. I also wore a 24 hour Holter monitor last week but won't know the results until I have everything done.
Here is my stress/concern. I have had this aching pain in my left arm. I've had it off and on for years. But, for the past couple of days, it's been almost all day long. I have a couple of tender sore spots in my upper shoulder, too. Plus, a tender spot in my upper mid left chest which a doctor once said is costochondritis but I don't think so.
Anyway, should I be so sickly worried over my aching arm? What could it be? I haven't injured it or strained it. It seems fine when I get up in the morning but as I move around during the day it starts to hurt and by the end of the day, I have to get a heating pad out for my upper shoulder.
My upper outer arm feels a little sore when I squeeze it and the rest of my arm just aches in different spots down to my hand.
I'm so worried that there is something really wrong with my heart and this is a symptom. I've been having palpitations and feeling really jittery today, too. Once again, mainly when I get up and move around. Very weird.
I really need some reassurance.
