It happens whether I am sitting, standing, sleeping, driving...whenever. It is driving me crazy! It started out with stabing left shoulder blade pain and has progressively gotten to where it is now. When the pain come its like a spasm, as if something just blocked a blood vessel and everything went to sleep.

I was thinking maybe MS or Sciatica or something of that sort but I have no idea and I just want to know what is causing this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness and pain on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side. I also do have lower back pain but it comes and goes. A little over a year ago I did have a cat scan,chest xray, & EKG done but everything was normal. If anyone has any advice I would appreciate it. Thank you.
All the tests they performed came back normal and they sent us on our way! Now he still complains of a tightness and pain in his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side by his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> its been almost 4 months and the pain has not gone away. He doesnt have insurance and around where we live its hard to get seen by a doctor if you dont have insurance so we havent followed up with anyone. He also complains of a weekness on the left side and he doesnt know what to think about the pain. Does anyone have any suggestions????
This could be totally different that what you have, but I also experienced tingling in my fingers in my left hand, some tingling on the left side of my face, and generalized neck/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain. I went to a neurologist and had tests done, but they were all fine so he sent me to physical therapy. Turns out I had a couple of pinched nerves that were referring pain all over the place. After about 6 weeks of PT I was 90% better.
I also have pain in mine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of foot and some time the pain in mine foot is high. i also have pain in mine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> chest left side of shoulder. Mine parrents have history of Cardiac problems and have stunt. Several time i went to cardiologist mine ECG, blood pressure, ETT Ecocardiogram and Cardiac Enzyme all fine. Mine Colestrol level is also ok. i walked daily and never feel any problem in walking whether it is halfy an hour or more.
I have been experiencing a dull pain on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my head above my ear. I also get intense pain deep in my ear ( No Infection present). This has been ongoing since early December09. The pain is worse at night especially if I lie on my left side. It wakes me and I cannot sleep. i take 60mg of codeine nightly which allows me to relax. I am waiting for MRI results, which will take another week to process. I take paracetamol with no effect at all.
About a year ago I became bloated, and then developed severe burning down left side, shoulder hurting I would wake and heart would be racing with severe pain down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side, my nerves seem to be on edge all of the time, seem to start having mild tremors in upper body. Went in to my PCP and my pulse was 120, wanted to know what I was nervous about, my reply was nothing had changed in my life other than this severe pain.
my husband has been haveing pain in the upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and when he lay's down if his left shoulder aint elevated his arm goes numb. I'd like to know what could be causeing this.
since then I've started having dull to mild pain, and numbness in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and back between shoulder and bottom of ribs on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side. I have also started having a burning sensation when I urinate, and having on and off pains in my kidneys. I should let you know that I smoked for 26 yrs. 1 to 2 packs a day, but since this has happened I've been quit for a month, but chewing nicorette gum. Any help with this would be very greatly appreciated thanks!
Now it seems to have turned into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness all over and is in my head down to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> real bad and then in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> leg. I don't know what's happening and it's really scary. MS was ruled out about 6 years ago but maybe that's what it is. Thank God for walking with me every step of the way.
Often at night while lying on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side I also get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side and sometimes chest pain. Last night was the worst I ever experienced with numbness all along my left side from head to foot. I was also dizzy, felt some nausea and had some trouble speaking. I went to the ER and they told me I was in excellent condition and sent me home without performing any tests such as EKG...etc. The doctor at the ER was even angry and told me to make a doctor appointment.
Over the next several days I experienced persistent weakness / <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side, especially my arm and leg but also my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> jaw and face to a lesser extent. Also minor chest tightness. Again, taking Xanax completely removed my symptoms, but I tried to stay off it since I know it is easy to develop a dependence. Also, after waking in the morning up all of my symptoms seemed gone, only to reappear an hour or so after waking.

For about 3 or 4 years now I have been having pain on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> that seems to be worse in the evenings than during the day. I have had a stress test done and with no problems found. Now, along with the chest pain, I am having weakness in my muscles on the left side of my body. It feels like I went through a rigorous workout yesterday, but I did not. Also, I am cramping all the time. I can barely flex a muscle and then it is cramp city.
Since then I have been taking it easy, no exercise, eating alot more and trying to rest. Yet I have constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side, mostly the breast and above and below it (underneath my left rib) I also have bad back pain, directly across from my chest pain. my left arm is constantly numb, expecially around the elbow and shoulder area. my left armpit now has a tingling sensation all the time. I now get alot of headaches.
