I have been suffering left arm pain for like 6 months now. I don't remember at the time it began feeling anxious or depressed. Over the past few months anxiety has been creeping up on me and I habe had a few anxiety attacks. The last month I haven't been myself at all I have felt really low. I don't know whether anxiety and depression have caused this left arm pain and it's really worrying me. I'm almost scared to go the doctors as I am convinced I am dying. I have health anxiety I think every ache and pain I'll die. I also worry my mum and dad will die. This arm pain is worrying me most right now. Anyone else get this ?

Yes I'm in the UK it's free lol. I am going to get it checked out. I know it ain't my heart as I guess something more serious would of happened by now. Looking at other forums it all relates to anxiety. I never get chest pains. Thanks for help.
