    Left arm pain and heart disease

    I am getting a dull pain in my left arm almost every day. The pain is in the triceps area (outside of upper arm). I have noticed this for the past year approximately.

    When it is related to a heart issue where on the left arm does the pain usually occur?

    I am 48 years old with a father who had heart disease. I eat a very healthy diet but do not exercise enough. I am underweight.

    Sounds more neck or upper back impingement....but if you are concerned, a visit to your GP and request for blood testing testing, referral and maybe stress test would be in order.

    Does it get worse with exertion?

    When I stretch my arm the pain is worse which logically might indicate a muscular issue.

    Do you have a chiropractor? Might be of help.
