    Post stabbing pain/slow heart beat/electric shock at night

    The past week I have experienced alot of stabbing pain in my ribs/upper left quadrant & lung area. A while back my GP said I just had some inflammation of the pleura in the lungs. I think it may also be costochondritis but this is a constant problem for me. I have had all the tests done, all negative for heart problems, etc.. It seems I get these weird sensations which feels like my heart rate is either very slow or barely there and a strange feeling like an electric shock near my throid/chest area and maybe a sharp piercing pain. At times, especially when lying on my left side in bed this electric shock type of feeling is worse, somewhat better if I lie on my right side. Does anyone else experience this? I feel at any time something bad is going to happen and I am going to have a heart attack (docs reassure me it is NOT my heart). Is this from being hypo?

    I had the same type of thing happen to me as well. It was during the night. I woke up to feeling like I was having slight piercing shocks in four or five different places around my left side near the heart. I have not exereiced it again. I too would like a comment or thoughts from to what it could be etc. Scot
