This will be quite a long post and I'm sorry, but I just need some advice. This all started a week ago when I had just eaten a big meal and was on my way home. I had this weird chest sensation and my left arm went numb. I waited until the next day and went and saw a doctor. She ordered and EKG and checked me out and said I was fine, these were just normal heart palpitations. So I returned to work afterwards. After work I went home and still had these weird sensations, not really chest pains though. So I let it go on a couple of days and one evening I laid down to go to bed and couldn't sleep for the constant burning in my chest. I went to the local ER and the on duty doctor did an EKG and chest x-rays and said everything was normal I just had acid reflux. He prescribed me some medicine and I have been taking it and the burning hasn't come back as of now. Just last night I laid down to go to sleep and couldn't sleep because I would have one of these chest sensations and all of a sudden my hands and feet began to tingle and they would quit if I got up and walked around, but as soon as I laid back down they would do this again for a little while and quit. Now today at work I have had this tingling/burning sensation across my shoulder blades that has been somewhat constant. I also have moments where my whole body feels tingly then it will quit and my feet feel tingly. I'm 24 years old and I do smoke, but haven't had any health issues before. I just want some advice on this situation, is this just anxiety or something else? Please respond.
