In brief: Chest pains

Chest pain radiating down your arm suggests heart disease.
There is no obvious connection to cramps in the legs. To assess the type of chest pain ask these questions: 1. Does it occur with exertion or after eating or being upset? 2. Does it stop with several minutes of rest? 3. Does it feel like pressure under the middle of the sternum. 3 yes=high ; 2 yes=medium risk; 1 yes=lower; 0 yes=very low.
