Chest pain,left side of chest under arm and under heart area,pain through arms

Hi, i am having chest pains. They are mainly whilst i am sitting down but go when i stretch . The pain tends to be worse in the evenings. The pains on the left side of my chest are mainly under my arm but also under the heart area. On the right side of my chest they are mainly centered in the middle of the lung . Sometimes they come on after eating. I have also felt pains through my arms mainly my right arm. It is always in the same place. Could you please give me some advice. Thanks

I would like to know few things like how long you have been suffering from chest pain? Is it associated with breathlessness on exertion or seating and palpitation? If answer to above question is yes then it indicates heart related problem?
To rule out heart disease you need to undergo exercise treadmill test and ECG [electrocardiography].

Some times pain to Lung related conditions e.g pneumonia/abscess/fluid in lung will cause similar symptoms but fever might be present there and needs X-ray to be done to rule out it.
Again symptoms due gastric or duodenal ulcers and cholecystitis will be similar.

So thorough clinical examination and imaging is required to diagnose condition. Consult physician for the same.
Take care.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
