Dear Dr Sometimes when i climb up 3 or 4 stairs i feel ache or a minor pain in my left arm & shoulder & sometimes i feel it in my chest & sometimes when i climb up 10 floors i fill just left arm pain . I did come cardio tests last Dec (EKG , stress test , echocardiogram 58% EF) all were normal & my Cardiologist told me you are very fine & nothing to worry about . I have been diagnosed with sliding Hiatal Hernia through upper endoscopy & i did MRI on my neck as i have a lot of pains in my neck & around . I don't know if the hiatal hernia or the neck problems are envolved in feeling aches & pains when doing exercising or not ? Do you have explanation . I will attach you the MRI report of my neck .

Brief Answer: You have ruled out cardiac problems Detailed Answer: I think that your problem isn't so worrisome because you haven't any accompanying signs and symptoms for angina pectoris. What is more important is your cardio tests are normal. Hence, do not be worried and take it easy.
