I was SO relieved to see your post February Girl. I had catheter ablation in 1997, which did cure my WPW. After the ablation I developed several "new"
symptoms, such as PVC's, PAC's, and sinus tachycardia. I have been on Atenelol and Ativan for the past 2 years, and that has helped tremendously.
Now, I would say for about a year, I have what you are describing. It starts in my arm,either one, and then it travels up my arm across my chest, and then I get the squeezing, weightd pain in my heart. It lasts for about 3-5 minutes and then it slowly eases up and then it's gone. I find it happens mostly the week before my period. I've been to the ER, and like you, they find nothing and send me on my way. I'm convinced it has something to do with some type of damage done to my heart muscle during the ablation, and that it's some type of muscle spasm. The cardiologist seems to think I'm talking myself into some type of episode. It's very real and very scary, but I guess I just have to live with it. I was just relieved to know I'm not the only one.
Be well, and best of luck to you.
