| | Chest/left arm pain?
Hi. I am new to the boards.
I have been worried for a few days about a certain something.
Recently, I started lifting weights to tone my arms (only a 3-pound weight). After starting to lift again, I noticed that my left arm had started hurting on and off. The pain was not burning, but an annoying type of pain. This has happened for a few days on and off. The first day it was around for longer amounts of time, and gradually, each day, the pains got shorter. With this, I noticed that my chest started to hurt. Not a really painful hurt, but just a pain that was there, kind of like pinching. At one point, during the night, it woke me up. Now, my left arm pain is basically gone, but my chest pain is there on and off still. After I ate dinner today, it was pinching-like for a few minutes. A few days ago, the pain had moved to my neck. I am not sure if any of this can be related? I am not sure if heart attack symptoms can last for days in a row, because that is what this is -- lasting for about four or so days.
Then there is the other thing -- I am 19 years old.
I shouldn't be stressing over such things, but I can't help but wondering and being worried if I had a mild heart attack or...? I just don't know.
If anyone could help or give me peace of mind, it would be greatly appreciated as I have been pretty uptight and worried about all of this.
