What causes elbow pain and what causes a pinched nerve in left side of chest upper?

Unclear.: Elbow pain can come from varied conditions including musculoskeletal, rheumatological, and neurological which would include a pinched nerve. Chest pain is always a potentially very serious condition as it could represent a life threatening cardiac condition. Unless medically cleared, all complaints of chest pain should be treated as a medical emergency in an appropriate setting (e.g. Er). ...Read more

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

Pain in middle top back pain in left arm and elbow sour tast burping burnig in stomach chest pain and pressure filling sick ben 8 months astil hav sym?

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.
The sour tasted, burning in chest/stomach, and nausea (feeling sick) could be many things (i.e. reflux, hiatal hernia etc) and your doctor can help figure it out. Good luck! ...Read more

GI symptoms: Sounds like you could have reflux and you are feeling and tasting the stomach acid as it splashed out of the stomach and onto the esophagus. You could try to take over the counter medications like Pepcid (famotidine) when it happens. You could also try something like Prilosec but would discuss this with a doctor before starting the medication long term. Also stop eating 2 hours before bed. Good luck! ...Read more

Leftside elbow pain/numbness wrist/finger tips numbness, shoulder pain left side of left breast both upper part of back, not all time some ?

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

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

Should i go to the ER for elbow pain and chest discomfort? Went to ER 2 days ago, chest X-ray clear, no history of heart issues.

No!: This is not a reason to use an er! if acute cardiac pathology was excluded 2 days ago you should take your elbow and chest symptoms to a primary care physician for a thorough evaluation. Er care is expensive. Ers are crowded. Ers are for acute, life threatening conditions. If you don't have a primary care physician try asking your friends for recommendations. Good luck. ...Read more

While sleeping i suffer from chest tightness mainly on the right chest and right elbow pain.I experience right knee pain too..What could be the cause?

Hard to say: Pains at night can be a normal result of activities during the day, and even arthritis which is commonly worse at night. Chest tightness is a concerning symptom, especially for a man in his mid 40s. It can suggest a serious problem like heart disease, or more commonly, reflux, or something like asthma. You have several things that may or may not relate. As you are suffering, best to get good exam. ...Read more
