I'm a 22 year old male, weight about 270lb (I'm working on it), 6' 2" and I've been dealing with some (hopefully) anxiety related chest pains for almost a year now. I've had ECG's and blood tests which have all been normal according to the doctors I've seen, but my doctor has ordered an echo cardiogram for tomorrow to confirm no problems. The last week or so I've also been having left arm pain from my neck down to my shoulder and up to the forearm, but no chest pain. It's mild and can last for hours or even most of the day, but I can't find a sore muscle anywhere. It does not seem to be effected by physical activity as I've been helping my friend move all day and during some of the heavier lifting I've actually not felt it at all. I do work as a programmer and system administrator so my computer use is 8-12 hours a day and I have a fairly high stress job.
I will hopefully have my cardiac answer tomorrow, but I would still like to hear what peoples experience is with this kind of pain. As I understand it Angina should go away within 5 minutes of rest so if this were unstable angina before a heart attack I should probably already be dead right? I'm going to see my doctor about this pain as well, but any ideas or input would help.
