At this point I have no idea what's wrong, so I just thought I'd ask here.

For the past couple of weeks, I've been getting a very painful stinging sensation in both my left ring finger and heart at the same time. It never lasts more than a couple of seconds, but the pain always hits both areas at the exact same time. Last night, it got worse than it ever was. When I woke up this morning, I could feel a pressure in both my finger and my heart, as if someone is holding them constantly.

I thought of the possibility of a stroke or heart attack, but it doesn't seem likely. I'm only 19 and in good shape. My blood pressure was just tested not even a month ago and it was perfect. I haven't been doing anything unusual or different since the symptoms started.

That being said, what else could it be? Does anyone here know what might be causing this? Thanks in advance.
