Leftside elbow pain/numbness wrist/finger tips numbness, shoulder pain left side of left breast both upper part of back, not all time some?

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more

Am I having symptoms of a heart attack? Right breast pain, pain around shoulder blades and down the center of my back, pain in my right jaw, a little nauseous

A: A heart attack is when one of the heart arteries becomes plugged with plaque or fatty deposit and then a blood clot forms to completely plug up this vessel. At this point a portion of the heart muscle does not receive blood flow and permanent heart damage will occur if the artery is not opened within an hour or so.

Different patients will experience a heart attack differently. The "classic" presentation is a heavy weight, like a ton of bricks, sitting on the middle of the chest. This may be associated with a pain radiating to the left shoulder and arm as well as nausea and sweating. However, there are many other types of symptoms some patients experience when having a heart attack. Sometimes the symptoms are only in the neck or jaw, sometimes the symptoms are only in the arm. Sometimes there is no "pain" but only a sense of shortness of breath or a strong sense that 'something isn't right.' some people will have only minimal symptoms and never really realize they had a heart attack.

If you experience any of these symptoms e.g. Any bad or uncomfortable feeling between your ears and you belly button, that last 5-10 minutes or more I would encourage you to call immediately to your doctor for further advice. If these symptoms are worsening, you cannot breathe, you pass out, etc. Dial 911 immediately. ...Read more
