I am having carotid artery sharp pain on right side and shoulder neck arm pain along with chest pain in center. Is this serious?

Could be: That could be serious. The most troublesome thing you said is that you have chest pain in the center. Undiagnosed chest pain in a 47 year old who reports, as you do, a history of angina, should be further evaluated, especially if it's new, occurring more often, with less effort, lasting longer, or getting worse. ...Read more

Neck, shoulder/armpit, arm pain, and a couple lumps in breast felt by dr. All on l side. I'm 23 years old. Breast cancer?

Not always/depends,,: It doesn't always mean cancer. This can be fibrocystic disease with cysts that come and go with your cycle due to the hormones produced. It can also be benign lumps like fibroadenomas and the neck pain, etc. Can be unrelated. More tests like biopsy and scans may be needed, especially if you've got a family history of breast cancer so see your doctor to talk about what to do. Good luck. ...Read more

Can hiatel hernia cause chest pain & palpitations? Ekg was normal? Sometimes pain in neck & left arm feels weird like weak. Having stress test tmrw.

Can hiatel hernia cause chest pain & palpitations? Ekg was normal? Sometimes pain in neck & left arm feels weird like weak. Having stress test tmrw.

Chest pain possible: Hiatal hernias can certainly cause chest discomfort but I would think palpitations would seem less likely to be directly related to the hernia. You are doing the right thing by having a stress test and would certainly do any other cardiac tests recommended. If you believe you are having more severe symptoms or new ones I would seek emergency attention. ...Read more

Is a chest X-ray sufficient to rule out a lung mass as the cause of chest, shoulder and arm pain or should further studies be pursued?

Xray can't see all: A mass large enough to cause chest pain is not likely to be missed on a properly done xray, but some very small ones at the edgesof lungs/chest wall can cause pain and not be seen on an xray. A thorough history and physical exam can help teasing musculoskeletal pain which is not visible on the xray--muscle/tendon strain or ligament sprain cannot be seen. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Strong ache under the arm pit on the chest side radiated later to the shoulder blade, then down to make a band on the left upper arm. Pain stronger when standing. Nothing done to cause muscle strain.

Strong ache under the arm pit on the chest side radiated later to the shoulder blade, then down to make a band on the left upper arm. Pain stronger when standing. Nothing done to cause muscle strain.

Go to the hospital: The symptoms you describe are very concerning given your age. Without something that makes you think of a muscle strain, this is even more concerning. If you are short of breath, nauseated, have palpitations or are sweaty, please seek care immediately. Call 911. This can be a heart attack or a problem with your aorta. I hope it is neither of those things, but you should be seen asap to be sure. ...Read more

Chronic r arm/shoulder pain x6yrs. 2 wrist surgeries & radial nerve release gave zero relief. Current CT angio neck report said modest cervical spondylosis. Could this be the cause of my arm pain?

Absolutely: Cervical spondylosis is a much more common cause of radiculopathy and nerve pain than thoracic outlet syndrome, a cervical rib, a brachial plexopathy or shoulder impingement syndrome, particularly with confirmed cervical spondylosis. Have a spine specialist consult. The history is extremely important and the patterns. Emg/ncv' s are sometimes helpful, but not always. ...Read more

Who says it isn't: Who says it isn't heart related. How long have you had this. Is this acute? Evet though you are young if you have not had an evaluation then heart needs to be ruled out. If this is a chronic problem then you need a more involved workup including musculoskeletal and neurological studies. ...Read more

Random twinges of neck pain on either side. Mild left side chest cramp/arm pain. Good EKG, heart enzymes, and chest xray. 21, active. Heart problem?

Neck pain: It is very unlikely at your age for chest pain to be related to your heart, especially with a normal workup. If you have been weight training, you may have muscle strain in the neck and chest. Are you anxious? Some folks get chest pain and it is due to panic attacks that come unexpectantly. If that could be the case, see your doctor. Take Ibuprofen 400mg 3x/day with food for muscle strain. ...Read more

A sudden chest, back and left shoulder and arm pain for about 30minutes. What is it? And should I see a doctor?

A sudden chest, back and left shoulder and arm pain for about 30minutes. What is it? And should I see a doctor?

Must call the doctor: Any person with chest, left shoulder, and left arm pain symptoms has to go to his doctor or the E.R. to be checked right away for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see if it becomes a bad heart attack. It could turn out to be a lung problem, a bone or muscle problem, or an acid reflux problem, but the heart attack kills people. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry". ...Read more
