Hi I plan to go to the doctor soon but cannot get there in the next 3 days so I was hoping someone could just listen to what I've got and tell me what they think.

First of all I'm 21 years old, male and reasonably fit and well... never broken a bone or been to hospital for anything, no family history of anything.

Basically, I woke up about a week ago with a pain in my chest, across my chest should I say, it lasted only about a minuite and went away, I haven't had a pain like it since, however on my LEFT side, very left, almost under my arm pit you could say I have had a kind of mild ache ever since...

It gets more and less painful, sometimes it goes but always comes back, also moves lower and higher down my side, sometimes it'll move a tiny bit closer to my chest area but remains in the armpit area.

Secondly, tonight ive had a kind of ache and very mild pins and needles in my left arm, the ache is in the top part of my arm nearest my armpit, the pins and needles are close to my elbow and down to my palm.

Id like to go to the GP asap but havent had a chance...

Anyone got any suggestions?

  • Sounds like stress/tension symptoms to me. Agony if you like. Stress can easily mimic a heart attack. How is your life situation? Job? School? Family? S.
