chest pain. sometimes the pain feels as if some one is pinching me in the muscle, or sticking needles in my chest

for the last few days...ive been having chest pain around my heart and sometimes it reaches bellow left arm pit accompanied by radiating pain to my left arm and hand. to some, those seem as classic symptoms of ANGINA , however, ive had this pain earlier this year and went to two different doctors...took blood tests, cardian enzymes,,,, ive done it all. and both doctors thought there was nothing to worry about. all results came out perfect! but this annoyes me so much. i feel it mostly in the pictoralis muscle....especially when i stand up, move my arm...also i find it difficult to breath . am quite young 29 y.o. what could that be???? i also suffer from anxiety and ive been stressed out graduate degree PLUS work. in addition, i worry too much.i get paranoid :) and i think the worse!!! during medical school ( 1998 dropped out) when i got the blood test results (for addmission) , i was convinced i had AIDS looooool thanks guy sometimes the pain feels as if some one is pinching me in the muscle! or sticking needles in my chest.

I think your right about the muscle pain. If it were your heart, the doctors would have found that problem by now. Your on the right track about seeing your doctor(s). You need to be following their advice rather than looking for it here. Work w/ them on finding the root problem to your anxieties and muscle pains. G'luck.

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2

What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
