I have a 4 year history of left sided chest pain which radiates to the top of my left arm, the symptoms are not constant but can last for weeks when they come, i avoid smoking as this definitely makes it worse and alcohol if over indulged in makes it much worse(not a hangover!). Symptoms seem to be worse at bed time and it can be very difficult to get comfortable, sometimes i experience pins and needles around my left shoulder blade and a numb pain at the top of my left arm, a sore upper back is also a problem. When the symptoms are present exercise is also not a good idea which is hard for someone like myself who loves sport.
I have been to A+E on many occasions fearing a heart condition or heart attack and each time i have been told it is not my heart. I have had countless chest x-rays, ECG`s and more recently a treadmill test and ultrasound of the heart. All these come back normal.
I am only a 26 year old guy and this is really effecting my life, without a diagnosis your mind is never at ease and i would appreciate any ideas you may have or anyone who has suffered from similar problems.
Many thanks in advance.
