Have it looked at: While a pulled pectoral muscle may cause pain and abnormal sensation, it's important to have it looked at to make sure it's not from an underlying cardiac condition. One differentiating factor is the muscle pain is oftentimes reproducible - if you push on it, it will hurt more - whereas cardiac pain may not be. However, without knowing further details - it's importan to see your internist/fp soon. ...Read more

Maybe yes?: First, would absolutely get evaluation for heart stability, as this could represent anginal pain. Secondly, investigate potential of problem within brachial plexus, or even referred pain from neck. Imaging and EMG studies may be needed to pin this down. But due to prime concern, do not delay. (Kehr's sign in this location may represent issue with spleen) ...Read more

Burning sensation: Yes, this is something to be concerned about. I can't speak to the "popping" noises that you are having, but the numbness/tingling/burning most likely is due to nerve compression at a high thoracic spine level. You need to see a physician and have an MRI ordered to evaluate if you have cord compression from a disc herniation or some other secondary cause. ...Read more
