Avatar f tn When scalene muscle is the cause of pain, the pain is referred to (either all or a combination of) chest, inner lining of scapula (shoulder bone), shoulder, posterior and lateral sides of the arm right up to the thumb and index finger.
Avatar f tn Hey all. I'm 34 yrs old and I am overweight BMI 40. I have been having chest pain on my left side. It also shoots to my left armpit, side of left breast and I have numbness and tightness down my forearm into my hand. I went to urgent care on Friday and all I got was a high WBC indicating I have an infection somewhere! So I went to the ER and that dr, didn't seem to worried at all. Now it's Sunday and I still have pain tightness and heaviness.
Avatar n tn I feel they should have done an MRI w/and without contrast at least, rather than just a plain cat scan- or did they use contrast to check the blood vessels in the head for signs of stroke/TIA?

Avatar f tn Myocardial infarction pain is characteristically crushing retrosternal chest pain which may move to arms, shoulder, neck, teeth, jaw, belly area or back. This can be squeezing, lasting for 20 minutes. Rest and nitroglycerin may help relieve the pain to some extent. Other symptoms are anxiety, cough, dizziness, palpitations, shortness of breath etc. your doctor would like to check the cardiac enzymes like troponin and CPK, CPK MB.
Avatar f tn I have numbness in my chest at times and hard to breath and sometime putations in the centre off my chest and occassional pain in same part of my chest and sometimes aching in the left arm and I have asthma any help
Avatar f tn I would start with your PCP and maybe on to a gastroenterologist. GERD can produce chest pain, severe chest pain that feels very much like a heart attack. I know because I have had it. And I was convinced that they were missing something but they were not. I just have severe GERD. As said by jayman panic attacks can produce chest pain or aggravate it.
Avatar f tn I am having pain/tightness/tingling in my left upper chest,arm and left rib cage. I have been to ER few times and Cardiologist. Heart and lungs trashed fine. I am a nervous wreck and don't know what else to do.
Avatar m tn My husband is 32 years old in great shape and has been having chest pain, upper left back pain, lower abdominal and side pain, and shooting pain down his left arm with some numbness. He has been dealing with these symptoms for a while now and keeps going to the doctor and running all these tests and nothing. Yesterday, while he was at work he had to leave and go to the e.r. and of course nothing, they told him to go to his doctor. which is what we have been doing.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Were you able to have this checked by your doctor? Chest pain may indeed be due to cardiac or non-cardiac causes such as heart burn. But it is better to rule out cardiac causes first with diagnostic tests like ECG or blood tests. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I have pain in my left arm and shoulder with numbness, and pain in my right arm. The chest pain is still the same. I have pain in my jaw, back, neck, and upper ribs. I also get tingling in my fingers on my right hand. I don't know if these are signs of a heart attack or the symptoms of what my doctor still thinks it is Costochondritis?
Avatar m tn everything you have written on here tells me that. True heart related chest pain is not located on one side or the other on the chest. Pain, if you are having it while resting or sitting in a chair, that is heart related would be caused by a very severe form of heart disease, which would have easily shown up on an EKG. The numbness could be a neck issue. Have you considered seeing a nuerologist? A gastroenterologist? You might want to consider seeing one or both of those two specialists.
1553173 tn?1358434089 AHHH the main question. Is the anxiety causing the chest pain or is the chest pain causing the anxiety. Either way you need a doctor willing to find out.
212633 tn?1277307127 In the minds of many people, chest pain equals heart pain. And while many other conditions can cause chest pain, cardiac disease is so common – and so dangerous – that the symptom of chest pain should never be dismissed out of hand as being insignificant. “Chest pain” is an imprecise term. It is often used to describe any pain, pressure, squeezing, choking, numbness or any other discomfort in the chest, neck, or upper abdomen, and is often associated with pain in the jaw, head, or arms.
Avatar f tn I'm a 18 year old female, light smoker with no history of heart disease in my family. Lately, I've been having extreme pain in my left arm followed by numbness and chest pain. about 2 days ago it was so bad that i could barely keep myself standing and i felt nauseous. it passed after about an hour and a half. but i still have chest pain and left arm numbness/pain. did i have a heart attack?
Avatar m tn For 5 years I have suffered with Chest pain that radiates into my back and down both arms during excertion. I have had stress test, heart cathorization, throat and stomach scoped. I've been tested to see if I am having spasms in my esophagus. I went to an orthopedic doctor who performed an mri of my neck and upper back. I did have two disc buldges in my neck but he said that would not cause the pain. The pain stops when I stop the excertion.
Avatar m tn till i felt another kind of chest pain it was under my left nipple and only at the end of a deep breath i can say its mild cause it didnt stop me from taking another full breath, the pain wasnt constant, a day i would have it another day i would not or a couple of seconds i would have it and other time i would not. i went to the doc again so he preformed an ekg and the result was normal. he gave me roxonin for the pain.
Avatar m tn m now experiencing pains on the left side of my chest, shoulder pain and at times, numbness in my fingers (usually just my left hand, but occasionally the right hand too). I'm currently in a part of Thailand with really basic medical centres. Is this something I should seek immediate medical attention for? Thank you in advance for your advise.
