Less likely: We would need more information-location of pain, its nature, association with activity, your age, risk factors for heart disease-Diabetes/HTN/Chol/smoking/family history etc in order to tease out your chest pain better.
If its exertional substernal squeezing type of pain relieved with nitroglycerin or rest, it could be related to ischemic heart disease. In that case, you may want a stress test. ...Read more

Left shoulder burning with some muscle spasm along with muscle spasm along left side of chest by armpit area. I do have hi blood pressure 186/103. any chance it's affiliated?

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

What would cause a dull burning pain on left side of chest above breast line and below collar bone? 20 minutes so far. Pcp says heart ok.

A couple of things: There are a few things that can cause that symptom. Regurgitation and reflux probably being one of the more common ones.

You may also have an entrapped nerve twig supplying the pectoral region or skin (perhaps trapped by the clavicle)...sensory neuropathy. ...Read more
