Having a dull ache to pain under my left arm pit. Thought it was from too tight a bra and relieves a little when i take it off but the ache is still ?

Get this checked...: I remember a patient of mine who complained that her bra felt too tight - and like you, she still had symptoms when she took it off. It turned out that she had heart disease! (she's fine now - happy ending!) because women's heart symptoms are often subtle, they are sometimes ignored. I believe you should be evaluated, and in my opinion, by a cardiologist. Talk to your doctor about this asap. ...Read more

4 days ago I started having random stinging pain in my left arm that has stayed and a dull aching pain in my jaw thats somewhat nauseating. ?

Arm & jaw pain: Without knowing your age, I would recommend you have a medical evaluation now. Arm and jaw pain with nausea are possible indications of angina, which is a problem with blood flow in the arteries of the heart. There are other possibilities, but the serious things need to be ruled out first. ...Read more
