A sudden chest, back and left shoulder and arm pain for about 30minutes. What is it? And should I see a doctor?

In brief: Must call the doctor
Any person with chest, left shoulder, and left arm pain symptoms has to go to his doctor or the E.
R. to be checked right away for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see if it becomes a bad heart attack. It could turn out to be a lung problem, a bone or muscle problem, or an acid reflux problem, but the heart attack kills people. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry".
