I am a 24 y/o female. I have had chest pain, pins and needles in arms and legs, slightly painful feeling of pressure around temples (pain alternates sides) - all symptoms come and go. I have also had pretty extreme dizziness and fatigue.

Have had heart tests (blood and EKG), chest CT and head CT. ED doctors have said everything is normal except I have a borderline abnormal T-wave inversion but that is also "normal" according to them.

No history of medical problems or illness.

Brief Answer:
Could be related to stress or tension.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. I would like to reassure you that these are not suggestive of any serious neurological disease.

Normal CT head, CT chest and EKG rules out any serious problems with brain, lungs and heart, respectively.

Your symptoms are most likely related to stress or tension.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
