In brief: Go to a DO

If you've already gone to a doctor and received your cardiology workup, it might be wise to go to an osteopathic physician for a second opinion, to help determine the origin of your left arm, and shoulder pain.
S/he can do a full osteopathic musculoskeletal examination, and determine if your left arm, and shoulder pain is structural, or in some way related to another issue. If it is musculoskeletal origin, she/he can do and osteopathic manipulative treatment, and relieve that pain.
