Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack symptoms pain in left arm


Avatar f tn Can left arm pain be a predisposition to a heart attack and what part of the arm do you get heart pain in? I have had about three ecgs done this year and all are normal.

Avatar n tn It only lasts for a short time but it is starting to worry me. I also have occasional left upper arm pain. Does this sound like heart attack symptoms?

Avatar n tn The night before last my husband had chest pain that went into his left arm and then his left leg and arm went numb to the point he had trouble moving them. He WOULD NOT go to the hospital. He's very bull-headed!!! The next day his chest and arm was very sore and he was very tired. Is this symptoms of a heart attack? I made him a Doctors appointment but he cancelled it. He doesn't believe it was anything to really worry about. He said..... it's just stress. I'm worried!!
Avatar m tn I have the usual severe chest pains in the center and on my left side, but the symptoms that scare me are the pain/numbness down my left arm and numbness in my arm and both ankles. This is starting to scare me! My left arm and both ankles feel like they're falling asleep, even when I'm just sitting down. If the ER ruled out the possibility of a heart attack, what could be causing my heart/chest pain with the numbness? Could it be heart failure?
Avatar n tn My mother died at age 66 of a massive heart attack. Is it possible that this episode is a symptom of heart disease or a pre curser to a heart attack? I should also mention that during rest I felt fine. When I was up moving around or moving my left arm is when I felt the pain. Also during the beginning of the attack it was very hard to take a deep breath. This would make the pain worse. If this was a heart attack or a symptom of one what steps should I take now that I am feeling ok?

Avatar f tn I believe your experience with health anxiety mirrors many of our experiences here in this community (to include mine). My original source of my anxiety and panic came with concerns over heart health. I was in the ER over and over and despite reasurrances from the docs and cardiologist that I was ok, I chose not to believe them for months because of what I was feeling. I had chest pains, arm pain, heart palpatations...you name it, I was experiencing it.

Avatar n tn My left arm became very weak, and I could feel some kind of flip flopping in my heart. I became really nervous. There is still some mild pain in my chest and crampiness in my arm. I have had arrythmias for some time and have noticed quite a few recently. Could I have possible had a heart attack? I am a 38 yr. old female. Also, if I were to be okay for the evening and go see my doc tomorrow, would he be able to tell if I indeed had a heart attack with blood work or EKG? Thanks so much!
Avatar m tn A man beside me told me that he had had a heart attack a week ago. He said that the only pain he felt was in his left arm. He also had some numbness in his arm. He went to the ER. They rushed him into the cath lab and placed a stent in one of his coronary arteries. He saved himself any real damage to the muscle of the heart, by acting on his instinct. He looked just fine to have had a heart attack a week before.
Avatar f tn sister has high blood pressure, other than that no family heart issues/attacks. For the past 4 days my left arm (upper) and my left coller bone has been aching, I wouldn't say pain.. its more like pulling a muscle feeling and also my left side of my neck, it can really feel it if I lean forward. And also ive been burping alot, and really bad indegestion last night that made me feel sick, but I always have indegestion, it runs in the family. Normal pulse in the 70s.
Avatar n tn These symptoms could be a sign that you are having a heart attack or angina (a pre-heart attack). The pain from this is usually a heaviness in the chest, sometimes associated with shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and /or sweating. It can spread to the shoulders, the jaw, or the left arm. Another cause of chest pain that radiates to the shoulder blades could be a tear in the aorta, which is a medical emergency. It would be most safe if you were evaluated as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn 33 year old female, history of chest pain dates back almost 6 years. Also have pain in left jaw, neck, shoulder, arm, back and armpit areas. Have been diagnosed with sarcoidosis in the past year, confirmed by biopsy. Have moderately high blood pressure, which is controlled with medication. In the last year, I have had a treadmill stress test and a resting echocardiogram. Both indicated no problems. Over the past 6 years, I have had 3 EKG's also (the last one being about 2 years ago).
Avatar m tn A dull pain in the front of my left shoulder and dull squeezing pain in my left bicep (happens separately most of the time). I also have a lighter dull pain on the left side of my neck. I have some chest pain a little to the left of the center, more caused by squeezing my arms together and flexing my pecs. The left side of my body (including face and ear muscles) have a "weak" sensation.
Avatar f tn Well if it was chest pain with left arm pain then first thing to be ruled out is heart attack, which you rightly did by calling the ambulance. The other possibility is severe acidity with GERD or gastric reflux. It could also be hiatal hernia. Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes.
Avatar m tn I feel several of those symptoms every few days. Particularly the pain/pressure in my chest and left arm and the weakness and nausea. Also my hands are extremely sweaty. My family seems to write these symptoms off, saying it can't be a heart attack if it happens so often. My thinking is that these symptoms are a warning that SOMETHING is off that might cause problems. My question is: How long do these symptoms show up before a heart attack? Can they occur for weeks?
