Maybe...: Chest pain that radiates into the throat, neck, jaw, or arms should be evaluated with heart disease - and other causes - in mind. You will likely have an EKG, oxygen level, and blood tests done first. If these are concerning, you may have more tests, including angiogram to look for blockages in the blood vessels that feed the heart. Get evaluated! LGromkoMD
