Heart IS fine. But chest pain (sharp), jaw pain (dull), headaches and very specific pain in left shoulder tip, elbow and pinky and ring finger. Why?!

Cervical spine?: The distribution of pain in the shoulder, elbow, and 4th and 5th fingers follows a dermatome: the distribution of a nerve root that originates in your neck. A herniated cervical disk (in your age group, usually due to trauma) is the most likely cause but there are rare causes too. Was your MRI of your neck? ...Read more

8 months of symptoms: It's time to see your doctor if you've had these symptoms that long! While I could speculate on some of your symptoms, a more complete history and definitely a physical exam are needed.

Having pain in chest, back, both armpits and pain radiates down armpits towards elbows. Pain more severe when resting and armpit pain comes in pairs?

Chest pain, hard breathing, pain of right arm because of tennis elbow reaching to neck & going down to shoulder & upper back. What is this&what can I do?

Chest pain, hard breathing, pain of right arm because of tennis elbow reaching to neck & going down to shoulder & upper back. What is this&what can I do?

See below:: See an orthopod for the arm/shoulder pain and your gp for the chest pain, difficulty in breathing. The arm sounds more like cubital t syndrome which is known to move towards the shoulder or chest/ upper back. It does not happen with tennis elbow. You could have both though.
Do you have RA as you are on enbrel (etanercept)? Why are you taking inh (? Tb)? So maybe a chest physician referral maybe helpful. ...Read more

Last night, I had sudden chest pain/tightness and left arm pain. It went away, but today I had chest pain again. What do I do?

Go to ER IMMEDIATELY: You may be young, but that does not preclude a heart attack. The symptoms you describe, esp. If they are associated with excessive sweating &/or nausea are typical signs of heart attack & angina in males. Go to the ER NOW & get it checked out. If they find nothing abnormal, they may require a cardiac stress test. If nothing cardiac is found, further exam should be undertaken by you family dr. ...Read more

Having sharp chest pain happens more when laying on left side or using left arm. Echo and chest CT clear also having night terrors. High WBC help please?

Not to worry: Sounds 100% muscular given that you can reproduce the pain with change in body position. Elevated WBC count can mean infection.

I don't have the luxary of seeing your bloodwork, so hard to comment. Stress can sometimes increase it as can inflammation, which may be related to an injury.

Night Terrors could also be from stress or anxiety too. It's too vague of a symptom. Given your young age ...Read more
