Left Arm Pain

When I am walking (usually after I have gone about a mile) I get a dull pain in my left bicep muscle. I have heard that left arm pain can be a symptom of a heart attack, but I have read that it is usually a "radiating pain" while this is just a dull ache in the bicep muscle as if someone had punched me in the bicep. I have had two stents implanted and I am 62 years old and other that the stents, I am in good health. I have had two instances of chest tightness in the past six months, but I had a stress test four months ago and passed it with no problems. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

Re: Left Arm Pain

Greetings BillC42! Welcome to the heart disorder healthboards. My sympathies, I hope the desired comfort is found. A cardiologist might be needed of course everyone makes their own health care decisions in life. A plant based diet may help keep stents and arteries clear but if they are already filled emergency measures may be needed as a plant based diet may take about 3 years to clear them. Peace
