More info needed...: Chest pain in a 48 year old male that radiates to the shoulder could be a sign of acute coronary artery disease. Without knowing anything else, this is a condition that you should have evaluated promptly. Have seen many men (and women) that came to my ER with "gas" and ended up with stents in their coronary arteries because it was not "gas". Call your doctor or head to the ER.
