arm pain: See a dr. And get checked to see what the cause of the arm pain is, likely musculoskeletal.

Agree w/ colleague. If your arm or shoulder hurts when u move your arm/ shoulder than more than likely it is emanating from here... If it doesn't ; see your primary care physician ... Good Luck!

Yes: Yes, the symptoms of cardiac disease can be quite variable, particularly in women. Patients can definitely have even serious cardiac events with little or no chest pain. A detailed exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause, cardiac or otherwise. Consider being checked.
