Okay I am 19 F and healthy. The only health problem that I have is GERD. okay so for the past few days I have been getting a dull chest pain along with a throbbing feeling in my hands and forearm. So finally, last night at about 4 in the morning I couldn't sleep because I was so worried about it! So I went to the ER and they did an EKG, CTA of my chest with dye, and a cardiac enzymes test. Everything came back normal. Well they noted that I have a calcified granuloma on my right lung. My BP was 113/70. and oxygen levels were 99%. They said they didn't know what was causing the pain!

I'm so scared that something is wrong with me! I have post-partum anxiety and I mainly just worry about my health. I'm about to lose it! I can't take it anymore :(

I have been taking Protonix for 30 days and I ran out of medication, So the past few days I haven't been taking my medicine. So I don't know If GERD can cause chest pain along with pains in my arms? Or does anyone with anxiety get this?!

I would like to suggest that you make an appointment with your OB/GYN physician for a good physical and to discusss you anxiety.  Perhaps you need medication for the anxiety or perhaps some therapy to learn how to deal with the anxiety would be helpful.
I would hope that knowing your cardiac and lungs checked out ok your anxiety level will decrease re those to body systems.  :)
Take care and stick with us.
