E.R. can evaluate: A person with chest tightness and left arm numbness can be evaluated by an ER doctor. Pains can come from a heart problem (serious), neck and shoulder muscles, the ribs and their joints, the lungs inside the chest, etc... If one feels his pain is coming from the heart, has chest tightness, or some difficulty breathing or has past heart disease, he can go to the ER by ambulance if that is fastest.
