I experienced sudden cramps on left hand. Then a whoosh of "energy" coming up from lower body, heard an "eeeeeeeee" sound in my right ear. Weak pulse, sudden pale face & lips (as described by my husband), numb sensation on lips and within the throat.

Heart race (most probably as a result of the sudden onslaught) and PVC, but no blackout. All happended when sitting on couch watching tv.

After all is better, measured BP 111/66, Heart Rate 68.

31 years old, Female. History of PVC, gastric.
Constant acute pain on the left side of the chest. localised though.

What could that be?

I am unable to determine what happened when you were sitting watching TV. Sometimes peculiar episodes occur with over-breathing. The constant pain in the left side of your chest is not from the heart - left sided chest pain is rarely from the heart. It may be musculoskeletal in origin. It sounds to me that it would be helpful for you to check with your physician.
Please note that I am unable to diagnose medical conditions online, so do see your doctor.
