Is there usually left shoulder/arm/jaw pain associated with angina pectoris?

Referred pain. The heart isn't typically an at where the body feels pain, so when pain sensations from angina occur, the brain essentially looks for a way to translate them. This typically is translated as pain in the shoulder, arm, and sometimes jaw. Since the heart is slightly offset to the left side of the body, thats where the pain radiates to.
