Hello new here with a couple of issues hopping some one can help me out here.

Well I'm a 24 yr old Male with gout never had any other medical problems up until last November i started to feel small sharp pains on my chest by the heart area. Its now April and the chest pains are still there not as often but they are there but thats not all from november till now i have also had sharp pains on my left arm by the shoulder area and by my wrist all the pains i fell are random they last for a couple of minutes also been dizzy at times, During all my visits to the doctors i notice my blood pressure was high so the doctor gave me medication that i been taking every day.

My Doctor,Cardiology's, and ER all say it has nothing to do with my heart and that i will not have a heart attack at 24, kind of hard to believe that when you have all the symptoms of a heart attack. The pains are not bad i can handle them there just there and bug me some times and make me think I'm going to have a heart attack or something.

I have had ekgs,x-rays,cat scan,blood test, and also have had checked my main artery and all is good. the past 3 weeks i have started to fell small numbness on my lower cheek on and off and the ER said nothing about it. so have no idea if its all part of the same problem or some thing different going on.

Family are saying its all mental and that i think of it to much, also friends have told me that it might be a muscle or pinch nerve that might be causing the sharp pains and numbness on my cheek.

Any one have or know some one with the same problem as me or might have an idea of whats going on to me???
