1) I do not have any known medical illness.
2) I wouldn't call it pain but my left arm does have a weakness to it that is very mild
3) No, the chest pain doesn't increase with exertion
4) I have not gone through any tests. About 3 years ago I had something similar and went to the ER. They ran bloodwork, an X-Ray, and one of those tests where they hook up electric probes and found nothing wrong with my heart at the time. Chalked it up to acid reflux.
Thank you for your answer. I guess I'm wondering why it wouldn't potentially be heart related. And if there are certain things I'd need to have for it to be heart related. I know 32 is young but I am considerably overweight and not as active as I should be (need to start working on both thanks to this scare).
Sorry to be a pain, the incident has stirred up some anxiety quite a bit and the reassurances help with that.
