Re: What could this pain be?
I've had a pain like this. I had it for years (off and on). I went to the emergency room once when the pain lasted over an hour. The result of that was I had a cardiac catheterization to see if my arteries were clogged. I have a 30 % narrowing in one artery and the cardiologist put me on zocor for high cholesterol, but he said the pain was not from my heart, it wasn't bad enough for that. It was a relief to hear that, and I stopped having the pain soon after starting on zocor. But I still don't know what caused it. My left arm would get numb also. So it's probably not heart related.
