Which arm will hurt if you are having a heart attack?

Pain radiation. Most of the time the pain radiates to the left. But if you have dextrocardia the pain goes to the right.
Usually left. Usually the left arm but sometimes the right or none. If you are having concerns, get yourself checked right away as this is a serious and very treatable condition.

Hello. . Hello. I know that this won't help the pain you had five days ago. However, it could be useful in the future. Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. Hope you are doing better. Take care. Read more...

Prob not. You wrote your question like Yoda which let me start with a Yoda quote that could be appropriate: "In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights the way". Heart attacks can have a lot of symptoms, including L arm discomfort. But in isolation it seems unlikely. Associated with chest/jaw discomfort, nausea, sweating? If so consider an ER visit. Otherwise call your provider. . Read more...
