Referred pain: The heart isn't typically an at where the body feels pain, so when pain sensations from angina occur, the brain essentially looks for a way to translate them. This typically is translated as pain in the shoulder, arm, and sometimes jaw. Since the heart is slightly offset to the left side of the body, that's where the pain radiates to. ...Read more

Common nerve roots: The pain fibers in the spine innervate areas of the body (dermatomes) in relation to their proximity to the spine during development.

Always keep in close contact with your cardiologist if you have this. ...Read more
