No past illness. In fact very active( went motorcylcing today with my kids) But I am very apprehensive about the feeling.( I lost a friend to a heart attack a couple of years ago).

Thank you for the input,

The symptoms sound like any muscle pain or from the spine of the neck from any pinching on the nerve causing tingling in left arm. Increase in the symptoms with neck movements supports it. But the probability of heart disease can not be excluded without an examination of doctor.. You need to have an EKG too to be certain about it.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your early recovery.
