Nagging Pain In Left Arm
I have eczema on my rectum, it went away after applying triamcinolone. It has returned and whenever I wipe my rectum I get a shooting pain in left arm?
Intertrigo: The peri-rectal area is a common area for a rash known as intertrigo. This starts off as an irritation and then secondarily becomes colonized by yeast usually. Avoid using wet wipes to wipe the area. It can be treated with a combination of topical steroid and topical anti-yeast creams and often takes a few weeks to resolve. Zeasorb powder is useful to prevent recurrence. See a dermatologist.
Hello, A few months ago, I woke up with a coin size pain on the upper part of my left arm. It has progressively gotten worse. It's more like a gnawing, nagging pain, that has since spread up and down my arm, into my shoulder and the armpit/chest area a

My left arm hurts me several times a day wit a dull aching pain that goes and comes. It feels like the pain is inside my bone near my elbow. Its just a dull nagging pain. What is causing this pain and what can I take to ease the pain?
Several: There are a number of possible causes of the pain that you describe so I would not be able to list them all here. The best thing would be to see a doctor and get yourself checked out. Then they could probably figure out the source of this pain.

See below: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
When to go to the ER: I am not sure, but this sounds very serious. I think an online forum can only tell you that it is time to get in to see your health care provider or even the emergency room. Please do not delay any longer.
Several things: Pain that severe needs to be worked up by your doctor in person. He/she will listen to you, perform an examination and possibly order some tests to see what's wrong with you.
Likely rotator cuff: Likely a rotator cuff issue. See an orthopedic surgeon.
Multiple Causes: Chest pain can be a symptom of heart disease but may be may other things such as esophageal spasms, great vessel disease, respiratory disorders (asthma, COPD, bronchitis, infections, lung collapse), and muscle problems to name a few. It really depends on the clinical situation and other symptoms you may be having. If you are concerned you should see a doctor to get more information.See 1 more doctor answer

Must call the doctor: A person with left shoulder or left arm severe pain symptoms has to go to her doctor or the E.R. to be checked for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see what happens next. It could turn out to be a lung problem, a bone or muscle problem, a nerve problem, or an acid reflux problem, but the heart attack kills people. Better safe than sorry. Calling 911 for an ambulance the quick way.
Vague complaint: Sorry to hear about your pain. Would you mind writng again with more info? - is it all the time? Is it in a specific location? With a specific stretch? Do you do a lot of repetition with your arms on a regular basis? Information like this will hopefully help us, help you. Other options for treatment may include rice, nsaids, , physical therapy, massage, etc...
Could be related: To the heart. That's what heart pain feels like. It could also be something else of course. Best to see a doctor and have a good history and physical exam.

Cardiac vs. Visceral: The most serious thing could be cardiac problems causing pain radiating to the arm and chest. Also, ulcers and pancreatic problems can irritate the diaphragm and cause similar symptoms. It could be something simple like anintercostal spasm, but this does not usually go to the arm. Chestwall abnormalities are also a possibility. See your family doctor for evaluation and testing.
