Last night, I had sharp pains in my chest on the left of my sternum and a similar pain left hand at the same time. I was lying on my left side and it happened 3 times over a span of about a minute and lasted for about a second each time. It was similar to a tendon pain.
I'm getting a little joint pain in my sternum which has always been crooked-it sticks out further by about 1" on the left side. I'm hoping this is the reason for the pain last night ___but the jabs in my left hand at the same time are what's making me worried.___
Could this be heart related?
I don't know if this is relevant but I'm 50, 5'10",described as muscular but fat enough to have considerable handles and waist fat. I do not do nearly enough cardio. I have parox. afib. controlled by Flecainide 150 mg twice a day. I also take Diltiazem 240 time release once a day, a regular aspirin, and Lipitor 15(?) mg.
