Re: Pain in fingers...heartache?
LOVE/LUST!! Ever hear the term "love hurts"? WE feel it physically!!
It's definitely psychosomatic probably because of anxiety/strong emotion.
Have you looked at the ring finger/heart connection? They say it's in the same meridian zone of the body.
Physically....there are nerves connections neck/shoulder/fingers. It's possible that anxiety or stress tightens the muscles of the neck and shoulders, thus, pressing on the nerves that lead to your fingers.
The other reason would be because of what happens to the body during adrenaline release (fight or flight), which prepares the body to react. The heart pumps faster and blood is rushed rushed into the extremities and into the brain. It could be a mild version of that response.
I don't think it's anything serious because it has only happened a few times. If it happened consistently in a variety of situations, I'd suggest getting thoroughly checked out by a doctor.
Try not to let the symptoms bother you too much, for your thoughts can exacerbate them and create a more stressful cycle of anxiety and symptoms.
She must be very special to evoke such a response from within you....!
It's all a matter of perspective!
