Symptoms ongoing for a year. Chest pain, left arm pain, left calf and thigh pain. Sometimes numbness in hand. No one knows. Been to many drs.

Mystery: Your year long syndrome deserves better than a 2 line description (your part) and wild guessing (our part). A thorough evaluation is necessary. If the UK system allows you to go to a university for a comprehensive evaluation, I would recommend that. ...Read more

I have a numbness/ tingling sensation under my low left ribs toward the middle of my body when I lay down on my side. No pain. 3-4 months.

If you see rash in the area, then I would see an M.D. as it could be shingles. The tingling with shingles though, is not usually intermittent or position dependent. ...Read more

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
