I am trying to figure out what could be wrong with my arm.This started almost 1 year ago.I have pains (aching,burning,stabbing,shooting) in my left arm.These pains are sometimes in my hand,forearm,upper arm,rarely above left breast.I have also felt in a tiny area of my neck some of these pains.I am now also experiancing some tingling off and on in both my hands like when they go to sleep.The pain is usually not bad pretty mild although I have been woken from my sleep a few times because the pain had alarmed me awake.The pains are off and on lasting seconds to 2 to 3 minutes at a time.I have been to my family doctor and even to the ER once (fearing it was heart related). I still have no real answers.I am 32 years old have 5 children.I do not recall any injuries to my arm.I do tend to lean my arms on my desk when at my pc which I am at for a few hours almost daily.Anyone who has this same thing,knows anything,any ideas ....please reply.

thank you so much

  • I have had the same problem. I went to er too fearing I had a heart attack. I do suffer with high blood pressure (not anymore since changing my diet and exercise. However. I still have it. Sometimes I can barely feel it, othr times it is sharp and stays in the upper arm. The chest pain that comes with it is usually mild and never becomes pressing or sharp. I do the lump in my throat. They usually call this panic attacks. This runs in my family, but I never thought they would happen to me! I hope you feel better. My doctor put me on a beta blocker (which is also good for people with panic disorder) to keep my blood pressure in check. Talk to your doctor and dig further.Good Luck.
