I doubt cardiac. I'm thinking something neurological/neuromuscular. Are the symptoms absolutely equal bilaterally?

See a generalist first, and if he/she doesn't seem to have a good idea, I'd probably ask for a neuro referral next. I've had sudden, profound weakness in my left arm, but that was from a disc derangement in my c-spine. Equal bilaterally is weird, and potentially really evil. Please see a doc.

EDIT:

Ahead of seeing the doc, check each muscle group individually. Elbow flexors, elbow extensors. Shoulder flexors. Wrist extensors and flexors. Finger flexors and extensors. Finger adductors and abductors. Any numbness or paresthesias? All weak, and equal bilaterally, or is there a difference side to side?
