Arm pain

I have a strange condition that seems to be worsening. Whenever I do anything where I have to exert any energy (or even when I'm sleeping), I get a pain in my throat area and a lot of arm pain. The pain feels like muscle aches and often runs down to my hands. Also, I feel like I have a severe case of heartburn at the same time. I've gone to the doctor and he thought it might be something with my heart (since I had a heart attack 10 years ago), but I went to the emergency room and they monitored me for 6 hours and confirmed that it was nothing to do with my heart. The put me on omeprazole for 10 days which seemed to help for a little while, but now its back in full force again. Any suggestions?

Have you seen your regular doctor about this condition? That would be the next logical step.

Thanks for your reply. My regular doctor is the one that sent me to the emergency room so they could monitor my heart. I think I'll have to make another appointment and see where that one leads.

Have had a work-up by a cardiologist?? How about by a gastorenlogist?? I have stomach issues that can mimic a heart attack. But it was through one of these "attacks" that I found out that my heart was not emptying fully. I would have both possibilities checked out.
