28/f. Dull ache in left arm starting from elbow to wrist sometimes in upper arm. Dull ache in left thigh also. Could this be heart related?
Probably not: Dull aches in left arm (often with numbness, shortness of breath, sweating, post exertional) could bea cardiac symptom due to similar "wiring" between nerves going to heart and arm.

It means that there: are fibers of muscle going through the armpit that are rapidly contracting but not forcefully enough to jerk the entire limb. But you knew that! Clinically speaking? Likely nothing if it's isolated & goes away by itself.. Twitching's a normal response when a muscle is either irritated by a chemical or other element or it's just bored. Don't ask me how to make an armpit more active but it's true. ...Read more

Maybe: Veins do not twitch but an artery will pulsate and it is not uncommon to see arterial pulsations in the temporal area. Also, since the temporal artery and temporal veins are very close together in this area, the pulsation of the artery may make it seem as if the vein is pulsating. You should see a vein specialist for a thorough evaluate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
