2 days ago I walking and I felt a huge jolt in my chest like an electrical jolt that took my breath away for a second, it was really strange but didn't think anything of it, then it happened again half an hour later, then from that i started to get an electrical sensations in my left upper/centre of chest and left arm on and off for 2 days but pretty constant, and i I get mini jolts from time to time ever since that huge jolt 2 days ago (in my chest) but is really mild and doesn't hurt. What could this be? Should I go to a doctor?

Unless you have an automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator I don't even have a suggestion of what may be causing your problem.  Please do see a Dr. to help you with this problem. 

Be well,

nah I don't have an automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator, but I did post on the forums a while back complaining of chest discomfort so this electrical symptom/problem is very new to me. I went to the doctor about my chest discomfort and said it was a pinched nerve. however I feel I don't believe him. Now I have this new electric feeling and mini jolts thats been happening for 3 days, so now I am stuck.

You may want to see a different Dr. for a second opinion if you do not feel your Dr. dx you correctly.  I know it can be very frustrating when you have physical sx and yet the Dr. does not feel there is anything wrong.

I believe that it's best that you consult your cardiologist.What you are experiencing maybe a symptom of a worsening cardiac problem.Swelling or edema is actually due to improper circulation resulting from dysfunction of the major cardiovascular organ which is the heart.Well,I have been reading a lot about cardiac diseases and I have just realized how painful it could be dealing with cardiac ailments.On the other hand,I was a bit boggled about the article which says that Automated Electronic Defibrillators do not improve survival rates in hospitals.In short, automated electronic defibrillators are useful and effective in saving lives, but they are not necessarily the best option in hospital cardiac wards, where staff and nurses are trained in emergency cardiac care.I've read it here:Automated defibrillators could be costing lives in hospitals.Well, I guess manual chest compression is way better than AEDs.

I have a new (this is my 3rd) pacer/defibrillator and I am having problems at night with what the technician says are "false shocks". They wake me up and I feel like I have had an event, but when I go for the pacer check up there is nothing recorded in the pacer's memory of any such shocks, or anything abnormal in the printouts.
I also get what I feel are electrical shocks down my arm and sometimes up the nape of my neck into my head. Often I too get tingling sensations throughout my body initiating from the heart area. Has anyone else had these symptoms?
