I was at work 1 day, and suddenly felt a rush of heat come over me, a short sharp chest pain and then I felt like I was going to faint, I didn't, then got a second rush and the same sensation.

I went to my doctor, described everything and was told I had a viral infection. He carried out a full set of blood tests and an ECG, and they both came back clear.

For 2 weeks, I had zero energy at all, but slowly came back. However about 2 weeks after that I started getting tingling sensation in my face and in my arms.

I went to the doctors and they carried out full blood pressure tests etc, but told me everything again is normal, they looked behind my eyes and several other tests and ruled out stroke.

I got on with things, but the tingling was coming and going, sometimes my head would feel slightly tight, but again, the doctors (5 different ones by now) said I was fine, and they are all saying this is stress.

Since then I now have pain in my neck that comes and goes intermittently, I also have occasional chest pain, across the top of my chest, almost just below my Adams Apple, which comes and goes and mightn't occur for weeks on end.

What worries me, is that I get pain under the bone in my lower left arm and also in the middle of my bicep in my upper arm, and a general feeling of weakness in this arm. However I have full movement, and when I use it, I still have full power in it, it just feels weak. This again occurs and stays for a week at a time, then maybe not for 2 weeks.

My 1st symptoms came around November 1st last year.

Doctors saying its stress puzzles me somewhat!
Any ideas? suggestions? HELP?

EDIT - I'm aged 26. 11 stone weight, exercise regularly, don't smoke and drink only rarely.
