Pain in left arm back and chest. Also have headache. 24 hour holter came back normal two weeks ago?

Holter: The holter is not a high probability study for explaining left arm, back and chest pain. The normal result you got doesn't really say much about the symptoms you are having.

22f.have loss of lordosis. Pain in left arm from neck to finger, back pain, chest pain, left ear pain, dizziness, headache, weakness. Sufferning from anxiety nowadays. Feeling weakhearted after fights. Mentally am not stable.

Be seen: I would certainly be seen by a primary care doctor to have these issues discussed and come up with a plan to get you better. Treatment of your anxiety alone may help in relieving some of your other symptoms.

What to do if I have headache and left arm and shoulder pain?

What to do if I have headache and left arm and shoulder pain?

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.

I'm having problems with my left arm it goes numb and pain in my head goes down my left and I always have a headache?

I'm having problems with my left arm it goes numb and pain in my head goes down my left and I always have a headache?

Many possibilities: That can be a nerve problem, stress or anxiety related, migraine or related headache, and rarely cardiac, especially at your age if you have no cardiac history. It may also be related to a past injury, for example if you are or were an athlete, from inflammation or a disc problem. You really have to get that checked out by someone who can examine you in person and get a better history.

I have tingling in my left arm headaches sometimes chest pain I'm stress some other symptoms?

Stress: Yes, stress can cause a lot of symptoms but chest pain in women can be worrisome due to women commonly having atypical cardiac chest pain. Tingling in the arm sounds more neurological like pinched nerve in neck or shoulder. Headaches are common for stress and many other causes. Putting all together is hard, but could be stress, cardiac, other neurological cause - or more than one. (and others).

Random sharp pains on left side of neck. Then I get a headache on the same side, Sometimes my left arm hurts. Any idea?

Sounds like..: It seems to be a muscular issue, so if you are not allergic anti-inflammatory meds (like ibuprofen or naproxen) would be recommended. Icing is also good for sore muscles. However, if your arm becomes numb and worsening of symptoms then it is time to see your doctor for immediate evaluation. If symptoms are severe then ED visit is recommended.

I have a bruise on my left arm from an IV. It's grown and I have noticed increasing pain in my shoulder and daily headaches since the day I had the IV

I have a bruise on my left arm from an IV. It's grown and I have noticed increasing pain in my shoulder and daily headaches since the day I had the IV

Not related: It's not unusual to have some blood leak from the vein after an IV is discontinued. It would be very unusual for your shoulder pain or headache to be related to the bruise, and I suspect they are unrelated. Consult your physician if your symptoms persist or worsen.
