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 lately.post 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.

My 4 year old son has a long history of illness since he was 7 months old. He is not getting better and has been much worse since his last surgery for tubes and cauterization of the lower turbinates. He has been treated with vancomycin twice now and it seems to be the only medicine he reacts to. Just recently we got back some bad blood tests (high white blood cell counts, really high platelet counts, normal range red blood cells, high MCV, High Lymphs absolute, high monocytes absolute, immunoglobulin is low. We are waiting on approval from our insurance to get immunoglobulin infusions done on our son. We do not have a diagnosis other than they say his immune system is low. Any thoughts of what could be going on? We are really worried!
