On and off i have been having intesne and mild left arm numbness/pain. Im only a 21 yr old male. I have a history of PVC's and afib. notinh to big. I have had a stress test, Echo, 24 hr moni all about a year ago all came out ok. the left arm and jaw pain just started about 2 weeks ago on and off. Last night i got it so bad along with chest pain that i called 911 and was rushed to the ER. A EKG confirmed i was not having a heart attack..... I still have the left arm tightness and numbness and it is getting worse. its random but last all day. Anybody else have this and if so what can be the cause. thanks

Hi K and welcome to the forum.

I hope you've made an appointment with your cardiologist to get further checked out. If he says it's not heart, you could see a gastroenterologist to see if you might have a hiatal hernia or reflux. There are other possible causes for the symptoms.
