I have a almost constant pain on the back side of my arm (crampy) in between the shoulder and tricep (x3 days). Could this be impending heart attack?
WHAT HAPPENED?: I answered this earlier. A constant pain, cramp and reproducible for 3 days is unlikely from the heart. The referred pain from the heart is usually not reproducible.

If the muscle is torn in the body of the muscle then surgery is less successful. Typically the torn muscle will scar down and after it heals you can do rehab and physical therapy. There is nothing you can do to accelerate the healing other than rest the muscle and do not overuse it. ...Read more
