Strange but true: Cervical radiculopathy occasionally can be present without the presence of significant neck pain. That is a little odd when we see it and for that reason deserves to be looked at in detail to make sure something else may not be causing neurological symptoms such as a mass lesion, nutritional deficiency, etc. Emg studies often help answer this question as well. A good neurologist can help with this. ...Read more

Maybe nothing but...: Shelley, The fact that it is positional (and not worse with exertion) would indicate more of a muscular condition. That being said, you have two major risk factors for cardiac disease (you smoke and are overweight). If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or a family history, that would add to your risk. You should have an EKG and stress test done by your doctor to be sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

See a doctor: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a doctor so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms. ...Read more

See a physician: This could be a large number of things, some serious, such as an upper extremity blood clot and even a heart attack can cause some these issues. Be safe and get checked out. Also make sure you have regular breast exams as breast cancer that has reached the lymph system on the left side can cause this. After you clear these possibilities, look at thoracic outlet and muscular issues. ...Read more

Probably not cancer: Given those set of symptoms, would think more about GI origin and musculoskeletal, but definitely should be evaluated further. A ct of chest would rule out or rule in lung pathology which may be considered. ...Read more

Don't ignore: If this pain is more than mild and has begun within the past day or two, it could be an acute problem needing urgent attention. An example would be bleeding into the abdomen with irritation of the diaphragm, which often causes not only abdominal pain but shoulder pain. If it has been going on for a much longer period, it is much less likely to be immediately life-threatening- but don't ignore it! ...Read more
