Can Anxiety do this or shoud I still worry about my heart? Male early 40 s: 4 months ago I experienced a near fainting spell sitting at work. My right arm went numb then the left and I almost passed out. This was very frightening. Since then I have been experiencing some unusual lasting symptoms. The numbness in my right arm has never completely gone away. Along with it I have been experiencing a constant tightness in my chest and a tingly numbing sensation in my upper back which has now become more painful. These symptoms have been lasting for 4 months now. I have been to several doctors and specialists with no results except to say now it is anxiety related. Can anxiety do this day and night for months? I am having a hard time believing that. How can I argue with the test results all normal: Chest X-Ray , Brain MRI, Thoracic and Cervical Spine MRI, EMG right arm/leg, Chest CT, Stress Test, EKG, Echocardiogram . You would thing that would be enough to convince me. I will say the only thing the doctors found from the above and they say they are incidental findings were a small herniated disc in the Thoracic spine and I do have a small aortic valve leakage. What do I do now? Thanks.
