Can cervical radiculopathy cause pain in shoulder, arm, side of chest and sometimes hand? But no neck pain? Most pain is inner arm. Mostly when I move.

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

Pain in the left side of chest. Neck and shoulder. Feel it when I sleep on the left side. Smoke and over weight?

You should have an EKG and stress test done by your doctor to be sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

My left side of neck & shoulder is swelled and my left side of chest also have a pain & left arm upper area is also having a pain?

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
