PLeurisy: Left shoulder pain when laughing Is suggestive of musculoskeletal origin or perhaps esophygeal. Although a small percentage of angina does present as musculoskeletal pain and cannot be ruled out your symptoms are more suggestive of an inflammatory origin. A CXR would be helpful and a trial of NSAIDS
