Dizziness and tight chest. Upper left arm hurts but it's not constant. Also, frequent numbness in fingers, sometimes in arm and face too?
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity at tolerated.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Hi I am a 52 year old woman. I have been experiencing. Pain in left and right arms a shoulder and numbness in fingers for about a week now.
Intrinsic shoulder: Joint problem, such as rotator cuff tear or frozen shoulder joint may be present.

Perhaps a parsonage turner syndrome or even a thoracic outlet syndrome if symptoms worsen on arm elevation. However, sounds like a mix of joint and plexus. See orthopedic surgeon first. ...Read more
Nerve root injury:
One of the more common causes of your symptoms is a cervical nerve root injury called cervical radiculopathy. In a man of your age the cause is more likely to be osteoarthritis affecting the foramen (hole where the nerve root exits).
The reports of numbness argues against an intrinsic shoulder problem and without antecedent trauma a brachial plexus lesion is unlikely.
Please go see your doc. ...Read more

Sleep smechanics...: Sleeping on your side without any cushion between your neck and shoulder can lead to nerve impingement, which caused the numbness you have. Also, the neck muscles that connect to your shoulder are overly stressed when sleeping in that position, leading to trouble using the arm the next day. This will get better with time and a lot of local heat/massage/OTC agents (i.e ICY HOT) to help muscle pain. ...Read more
