    I get pin prick pains constantly - Why?

    Dear Community


    For many years and more frequently lately I get small but strong Pin Prick Pains ( Daily ) near my heart area? - I feel that something is going on but don't know what it could be, I've gone to take a physical and everything came out negative (blood presure, cholesteral, diabete's, Ultra sound etc.)


    Here is the scary part, last night I felt that I went into a blackout while sleeping, I stopped hearing everything including the fan and went into a complete really black darkness, I remember snapping out of it really quick because I got really scared about it. I'm a light sleeper and even when I am sleeping I hear things, but last night it was something that I have never experienced before. EVER.


    My question is, What am I or could I be going thru to feel these pin pricks and this crazy blackout experience??? I felt that time stopped for a couple of seconds.  Is it possible for the heart to stop for a second and snap back??? Do I have Heart Disease???  Someone please help me with some advise! + Going to see a doctor this week again to take some more tests again for the pin pricks!
