    Pain in Left Arm?

    Hello I been randomly getting a pain in my left arm that radiates to my shoulder down to my hand and I basically am unable to move it. The pain is overwhelming (I would say 9) but it lasts about 15 minutes with the pain slowly subsiding and localizes to the shoulder/armpit area. This pain also doesn't necessarily come when doing a lot of activity.

    You say the pain is down your arm and into your hand...where exactly in your arm and where in your hand?

    Have you seen your doctor and had nerve conductive testing done?
    Have you seen a chiropractor?

    When I get the pain it starts around the armpit upper part of the shoulder I am currently trying to schedule an appointment with my PCP.

    That's good...I hope the testing will reveal what it is and that you can be set up with a treatment to help it.

    Hi...that's very fast to get in, and even though you don't like him, at least request testing and physio. X-rays probably won't show an issue if it's soft tissue or muscle on nerve pain, but it's usually procedure to get one. It sounds like lower neck and/or thoracic area.

    I can relate to your symptoms for way too many years, but there is hope for treatments and management once you have a diagnosis.

    Please let me know how it goes.

    I would also want to rule out cardiac causes.

    Absolutely...although you didn't mention any radiating from chest area, women do present differently with heart related issues.

    How did your appointment work out?
