I keep getting a heavy pain in the centre of my chest, sharp pains in my left arm, feeling nauseous and come over hot and sweaty. This has happen several times in the past week. I've been to A&E and my ECG and blood tests have been clear. I had an op about 4-5 years ago for SVT. These pains/ feelings are the same as then except I'm not having palpations and the pain is more central, I'm having them now but unsure what to do as I don't want to waste A&E time

I was told there was nothing wrong with me for over a year before finally seeing a cardiologist. What's happening now may have nothing to do with my heart but there is something not right and i don't believe it to be muscular
It could be nerve related. Pinched nerves in the neck can do it I would get a stress test to totally rule out cardiac. If you have to go back to A and E then you have to
