Chest pain and left arm pain but normal EKG?
I'm 21 years old, male, I went to the doctors office for chest pain and left arm pain that went on for 3 weeks. On top of that, my heart seemed to beat really fast (faster than normal) when doing normally easy activities like walking or minimal exertion. The doctor did an EKG and said it was normal, but my heartbeat is fast. He said it's probably due to anxiety. I'm still having chest pain and left arm pain a few days after the appointment. Could I still have heart disease at 21, after a normal EKG?
Also I don't drink or smoke

The doctor is 'probably' right, EKG's can be wrong, but you're young for heart disease, blood test would tell more. Surprised no muscle relaxants?

It's probably angina, which mimics the symptoms of a heart attack.
