28/f. Dull ache in left arm starting from elbow to wrist sometimes in upper arm. Dull ache in left thigh also. Could this be heart related?

Probably not: Dull aches in left arm (often with numbness, shortness of breath, sweating, post exertional) could bea cardiac symptom due to similar "wiring" between nerves going to heart and arm. These symptoms usually start centrally and radiate to the distal arm. The left leg however does not sate these nerves and a cardiac cause (like reduced oxygenation of heart due to blockages should not involve the leg. Read more

Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation. As long as the pain is tolerable, and you do not have progressive increasing weakness, or lose the ability to control the bladder or bowels, the vast majority of disk herniations can be treated without surgery. I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications. Read more

Get checked: Unexplained leg swelling should be evaluated by a healthcare professional, to rule out deep vein thrombosis. Impaired lymph node drainage, and possibly even a hernia, are other possibilities. Read more

Leg: Leg pain can be caused by several different conditions. Muscle pain or strain can cause leg pain, is more common after an injury or sports-related event, and is worse with activity. Pain in the leg can be caused by nerve pain from the back, in which case there is usually back pain, and the pain is worse with walking and standing. Pain in the leg can be caused rarely by blood clots, in which case the pain is usually worse if the leg is down, and sometimes associated with swelling. Sometimes Pravachol (pravastatin) can cause muscle pain but that shouldn't be just in one leg. If a patient has new onset of leg pain that is persistent, they should have an evaluation by their physician. Read more

Soreness: Muscular discomfort is most likely. Can you relate it to some strain from exercise or other strenuous activities? If other parts of the body become similarly affected, you'll have to consult your physician for evaluation to look for actual inflammatory muscle disorder. Simple muscle strain will subside in a few days. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or, if you can take them, Advil or Aleve should help. Read more

Unlikely: Blood clots are more common in the calf than in the thigh. You would also see swelling of the leg, so it is bigger than the other leg. Your pain may be muscle strain, but if there is any doubt, see your doctor. Read more

Gravity: These type of symptoms often are related to pressure of the baby's head on the cervix and pressure on nerves that are related to the legs.
