?angina: These symptoms are quite uncharacteristic of angina which is caused by blockage in coronary arteries. It's possible that muscular strain caused the chest and shoulder discomfort,but I recommend having an EKG and a treadmill stress test nevertheless to test your heart You may also want to consult a neurologist for evaluation and advice concerning numbness symptoms.
