I keep having a sharp pain that runs down the BACK of my left arm. I went to my doctor and he gave me a EKG and a stress test and everything came back normal.

I even got it while I was having the EKG and nothing showed up. Any ideas what could be causing this pain ? When I first got it I thought I was having a heart attack, but the doctor said, no.

I have had constant aching on my neck, left upper arm and tingling all the way down to my fingers. In 1996 I was told I had a bulging C-5 disk and the options were either surgery or non-invasive treatment.

I have been having pain running down my left arm, for a couple of months now and when I also have this pain it goes into the back of my neck and feels like I have heart burn.

But it still doesn't seem to answer the question of why I have the heart burn feel and the tention in my neck and shoulder.
After going to therapy my pain began to worsen and hurt in the back of my neck next to my spinal cord which then had pain radiating down my left arm and left chest. If I barely touch that area on my neck I cause the pain to become very sharp in those affected areas, the pain in my neck is unbearable and feels almost like bone on bone rubbing. I was wondering if this was a possible pinch nerve, cervical slipped disc or just a muscle sprain?

Starting this past weekend, I've been experiencing sharp pounding pain right behind my left ear running down my neck into my left arm. When this was happening I had a hard time with my vision, along with coherency. I don't want to see my PA, I do not believe she will do anything to help me. The unfortuante part is that I am in the military and have to go through certain obstacles to even see a real MD instead of a PA. I'm I being a hypercondriac? Is this all just an illusion in my head?
