electric shock in left arm.

Ive been having small electric shock feelings down the inside of my left arm, lately I'm getting the feeling as if a rushing feeling to my heart. it's only for a split second but my arm still hurts for most of the day afterwards. it's not a dull ache it's more of an "electric shock" feeling. I've had no injuries i've got no chest pains , but it seems to be more frequent.

You seem to be having angina kind of problem.. do not ignore your symptoms, get an ECG done immediately to rule out any heart related problems. .meet your family doc or report your symptoms to him for better guidance.

Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.you must consult a cardiologist to rule out cardiac cause for this pain in your left arm.Don't neglect and don't reason out with yourself,thinking that it cant be cardiac in origin.Thanks and good luck.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
