Hello Melodie!

Thank you so much for visiting the website and for posting your question here. I'm sorry you are experiencing these sharp pains and other symptoms. I can see why you are wondering what is going on--I would be too!

So this has happened to you two times total, right? About how long does this last? What are you doing right before this happens?

If it were me, I'd make an appointment with my physician to get this checked out. Anytime I hear about chest pains I think it's better to be safe than sorry. The added fact that your hand is losing strength during these episodes makes me think a doctor's visit is in order.

Please post again and let us know what you find out. Best in health, Michelle
