Having chest pain, pain in right arm.

Chest pain, pain in right arm, tingling in left hand when i sleep, anybody had similar symptoms? Hi, i hope somebody can help me, I am a 24 year old male who suffers from central and left sided chest pain on almost a daily basis, the left sided pain is a stabbing pain and the central pain is a pressure feeling, i also get pain deep inside my left shoulder and arm and have tingling in my left hand when i sleep which disappears within 10 seconds of waking up. I also find myself short of breath sometimes. I have seen several doctors and a cardiologist who have been unable to find anything wrong with me, the tests i have undergone are several ECG s, a ultrasound on my heart, a scan on my lungs to check for blood clots and a heart x-ray. Doctors have concluded i may have a trapped nerve in my back which is causing the pins and needles, despite what the doctor has said i am constantly worrying about this and fear i am going to die in my sleep, i am also too scared to do any excercise that will increase my heart rate which i know is bad for my overall health. Can anyone help me?
