Im feeling the same Way. Im 23 Female and this has been happening for the last month.. I went to the doctor today actually and they did an ekg and blood work today. Next Is an electrocardiogram(ultrasound of my heart) I have it scheduled for Feb 15th. If everything is functioning properly then she is going to have me wear a monitor if its panic attacks/anxiety she said its easily treatable? Did they perscribe you anything for the anxiety?? Im curious to know whats the treatment options for anxiety.. Let me know what happens Im curious..
Thoracic Surgeon Dr. Rajiv Kumar Srivastava's  Response
there can be some obstruction to blood flow of your left arm .get colour doppler for blood flow & find the cause of obstruction,it can Thoracic outlet syndrome which is a syndrome involving compression at the superior thoracic outlet involving compression of a neurovascular bundle passing between the anterior scalene and middle scalene. It can affect the brachial plexus (nerves that pass into the arms from the neck), and/or the subclavian artery or vein (blood vessels that pass between the chest and upper extremity).
The compression may be positional (caused by movement of the clavicle (collarbone) and shoulder girdle on arm movement) or static (caused by abnormalities or enlargement of the various muscles surrounding the arteries, veins, and brachial plexus).
