Terrified about my Heart

Recommended Posts

Would love some feedback----I have some heart symptoms that come and go--I've been doing OK recently.

I had very brief palpitations 48 hours ago. Since then, I have been burping a lot and feel like I have indigestion, my chest mildly aches (comes and goes), and my left arm has a mild ache. This has happened in the past--I'm 32 years old, but it has come and gone since my mid 20s. Between 24-26 years old--I had a cardiac MRI (26 yrs old) which showed everything was normal---EKGs, and a stress test when I was 24 yrs old. My most recent EKG was a year ago.

In the past, these symptoms flare up...terrify me....and then dissipate. However, I always worry that this time it is something really serious--OR these are all signs of something that the docs can't find. 

Has anyone had a similar experience? I've also been told I have GERD--but that doesn't explain the aching in the arm, which freaks me out.

I also wonder if I should get another cardiac MRI or something to see if arteries are blocked or something...I don't know how long a cardiac MRI is "good" for...

Would love other people's thoughts and opinions. It would be really helpful.

Thank you!
