Hello I am a 34 year old female and I

Patient

Q: Hello. I am a 34 year old female and I have been having left side chest pains, pvcs and tachycardia for months now. I have had an echo which came back normal, numerous ekgs that came back abnormal, blood work normal, and a holter that was normal other than the pvcs. My cardiologist does not feel that its my heart. I have also noticed that if I press on the left side of my chest I can increase my heart rate from 130 to 160 in seconds. The emergency room doc was dumbfounded by that one. How can all of this not be heart related? Any help would be greatly appreciated as this causes me great anxiety.
