angina? somebody please help...

i am a 19 year old male. i maintain a somewhat healthy diet but also smoke and never exercise. i noticed that i have been getting a pain in my jaw and left arm after smoking sometimes or when i have really bad gas. rarely short of breath and never have chest pain. pulse is usually punmping normally. just pain in the jaw and arm.

heart problems don't really run in my family either.
could it just be gas or my chronic bronchitis?

i'm really concerned, somebody please help.

Nathan-

I would get to a doctor and go over your symptoms. If there's any way you can cut back or quit smoking (I know, I know) that's the greatest gift you can give yourself. But, do get to your doctor to ease your concerns. Staying proactive in your health is a way to alleviate the fear.

Wishing you the best -- Brenlee

nathan,

Run for two or three blocks...does this bring on the pain? If so, it might be angina.

If not you probably have 2 coincidental injuries, perhaps a nerve pinch or a damaged rotator cuff (in the shoulder) and TMJ causing your jaw to hurt.

QUIT SMOKING!

Your symptoms are classic for not getting sufficient oxygen to the heart muscles. Smoking may be interferring and compromising your oxygen level.
