What causes heart palpitations.soreness in arms and chest pain?
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.
I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms are probably related to anxiety. Anyway, if these symptoms persist, I would recommend going to the ER for physical exam, a resting ECG and some blood lab tests (complete blood count, thyroid hormone levels, blood electrolytes).
If all these tests result normal, you should consider anxiety as the main cause of your complaints.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
