Hi

As you have ruled out heart problems my suggestion is to first to look at whether any of your daily activities puts a strain on your arm (driving position, typing, writing, lifting). If you can't see anything obvious I would be tempted to turn to biofeedback. You can buy some systems to rig up to your own pc, but you would need a system that could monitor your muscle tension. It might be simpler to look up a therapist that uses biofeedback and pay them a visit. Essentially, the role of biofeedback is for you to see a visual representation of your muscle tension and then you learn how to control this.
