Shooting Pain Down 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. ...Read more

Be calm and cool: Sharp shooting pains which are transient are not from your heart. So you should not worry. It is not uncommon for healthy people to have an occasional sharp pain which is transient, so it is of no consequence. Sometimes it is worth being patient and wait to worry. If the pains are due to something serious they will come back and be persistent. Then it may be a cause for some worry, not right now! ...Read more

Coughing with pain: may mean you pulled a muscle (intercostal, teres minor, trapezius, deltoid?) from excessive coughing.

Arm numbness: This could be from a herniated cervical spine disc. Did you fall down face forward recently? Or any other injury? Get a proper evaluation soon.

Does the shooting pain from a heart issue/attack come from behind the left ear and down the neck into the left arm? I'm experiencing that.21and active
Not really but: The most common path for cardiac pain such as from a heart attack is either straight chest heaviness or pressure in the sternal region or a radiating pain from the chest to the left shoulder and down the arm.
