Ulnar nerve Sx: It is most likely that ur gerd is giving you the chest pain rather than your ulnar nerve. Patients w/ulnar nerve compression can have pain, numbness, tingling, cold hands/arms, neck ; shoulder pain; just about any symptom from the fingertips to the neck, but not chest pain.

Much of your pain could be caused by a cervical spine issue, but not shortness of breath. Get in to see your pcp. ...Read more

It may be as simple as a medication or supplement you are taking, or require more testing to discover the cause. ...Read more
