I have light pain in my left arm, I take 2 aspirin daily. I am 28 only

It was probably earlier this week I found out someone I knew around my age, 28, passed away because of heart problems. Now since then I have pain in my chest , not always steady it does go away, and pain in my left side of my chest as well and sometimes under deep breaths pain as well. I also have a steady nagging but light pain in my left arm, nothing serious to where i have to put ice on it or massage it. Any help here? Its very annoying and I don t want to go to the Doctors again. Ps. I have taken about 2 asprin already this hour

It's probably anxiety. You are thinking about it whether you realize it or not. If you've been to the doctor and checked out OK, then don't worry. Did you know almost half the people that come to the emergency room with symptoms of heart problems have just had anxiety attacks? But if you're concerned, and need reassurance see a doctor, regardless. You won't be the first.

I have been having left arm pain and jaw pain for several days. It comes on at rest during the night or morning. Took aspirin at 12.10 noon. Still having them with pain below my jaw. Had similar symptoms last year was investigated with an ECG, exercise test and echo which were all normal - was put on heart medication until I had myoview scan which was also normal so taken off all medications. Was well for a couple of months. Symptoms have now all returned.

46 white male 6 0 180 I experienced severe left arm pain [only around my bicep] about 20 hours ago. It remained constant so 15 minutes later I took a baby aspirin and laid down. The pain went to sharp to a dull pain unless I moved my arm. About an hour later I decided to take another baby aspirin and continued to lay down. About an hour later I felt no pain at all. Another hour later I went to sleep for the night. I slept about 7 hours and woke up. When I woke up the severe pain was back [same region left bicep] so I took another baby aspirin and laid back down. I fell back asleep for about 4 hours and woke up with no pain in my left arm. I have been up for 3 hours now and have no pain. I would like to point out that I felt no pain or tightness anywhere else this whole time. Am i having heart issues? I have never felt this pain before.

I have a bruise from my elbow up my outer upper arm about 4inches long and 3 inch wide. It is tender near my elbow. I don t remember doing anything to receive it but do remember my elbow joint catching and when I straightened my arm there was a painful snap. It only hurt for a moment. This happens every once in a while but I ve never had a bruise from it. It has been a week and a half and it is still quite blue and purple. I take a low dose aspirin daily.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
