Demyelinating: It is hard to tell without proper history and physical examination. At your age a consideration is demyelinating (autoimmune) disorders. However, other rare conditions like syringomyelia or vitamin deficiency may need to be considered. Check with your physician for adequate diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

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
