In brief: Arm chest pain
Can be both! if pressure on chest trigger same pain then it is the chest wall and not the organs inside (bird cage is rusty but bird is well).
All organs in pain can trigger irradiating pain reaching far from the organ. At times only the far distant area is painful while the sick organ does not show any symptom till late !
