Presistant pain in top half of left arm?

Presistant pain in top half of left arm?

Persistent arm pain: If there is no history of trauma (ie a fall or twisting injury) then persistent single sided arm pain could have several causes. Is the pain worse at night? Worse on movement or at rest? There could be many different causes but without a proper examination and a history taken it is difficult to give you a proper answer. I agree with the other answers to seek advice from a doctor.

My left arm feels heavy. Its hard to move it?

Left arm symptoms: These symptoms could reflect a focal stroke! - but this seems highly unlikely, given your age. A second possibility is that you rested on your nerve bundle that runs down the inner tricep region, next to your humerus. This area when compressed makes our arm seem "asleep". A third possibility is a cervical spine nerve root compression. A fourth possibility is an axillary compression of nerves.

What to do if pain in my left arm when I smoke.?

How about stopping?: There is an old joke - "Doc, it hurts when I do this." "Don't do that!! " Smoking causes intense constriction of arteries, more so in some very susceptible people, and you could be experiencing angina or heart pain. If it is only when you smoke cigarettes, I would be very concerned and see your doctor immediately for more complete evaluation. AND STOP SMOKING!! Get into a cessation program asap.

Can you give me suggestions on pain in my left arm when I smoke.?

You need evaluation: To find the cause. Pain in the arms can be an indicator of cardiac problems, or can be something in the lungs or soft tissues of the shoulders, or even things in the abdomen like the gall bladder and other organs. Your doctor must make a diagnosis before anybody can suggest what to do. However, stopping smoking would be the obvious first step, and I strongly encourage you to do so. Get help!
