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

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).

What could be the cause of a tingling/pinching under my lower left rib (chest)?

What could be the cause of a tingling/pinching under my lower left rib (chest)?

Lower rib pain: I am not entirely sure of the cause of your rib pain. I can speculate that you may have a lower rib pain syndrome, which is characterized by pain in the lower chest or upper abdomen, a tender spot on the rib margin, and reproduction of the pain by pressing on the spot. You may also have some sort of impingement on the intercostal nerves, which run along the lower borders of the ribs.

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.

Nerve: This could be a pinched nerve that is aggravated in certain positions. If you are not extremely bothered by it, there is no need to seek urgent care. 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.

Is tingling pain in left shoulders, arm, left side of rib and tingling left foot, sign of heart attack even it normalizes after 15-20mins.

Statistically, no: The character of the pain and its distribution would make this a very improbable answer. However, answers regarding symptoms are statistical replies (and "one out of a thousand" means "out of a thousand, one"). If you have reason to worry about this then see someone and have an evaluation.

What does tingling pain in top left chest just below collar mean?

What does tingling pain in top left chest just below collar mean?

Usually nothing: A little cutaneous nerve is irritated by something quite unknown to modern man or doctor...seriously, not kidding. There's really nothing anybody will pin down for you on something like that with such little information except the fact, this is most likely insignificant. If things progress to shortness of breath, chest heaviness, or something really important drink H2O & Cheer on the CAVS tonight.

See your doctor ASAP: Tingling in the shoulder, arm, jaw, neck, or hands may be associated with chest pain due to cardiac causes such as angina or heart attack (poor blood supply to the heart muscles) among other conditions that affect the heart or the major vessels. I do not think your symptoms are neurologic in origin. I am more concerned about your chest pain. Please see your doctor as soon as possible!
