What causes sharp pain above the left breast and under left arm down to the finger tips.?

Pain above breast. If pain is felt on/above breast and on chest, most importantly is not from the heart! nerves from the neck spine covers the area from above breast to the arms and fingers. When there is pressure on the trajectory of the nerve, pain irradiates along the nerves. Or pain can be just strictly cause by chest problem unrelated to nerves = heart and lung and esophageal prob result in same pain trajectory.

Must call the doctor. Any person with chest, left shoulder, and left arm pain symptoms has to go to her doctor or the E.R. to be checked right away for a heart attack.
