Does pain in the right arm a sign of a heart attack?

Is pain in the right arm a sign of a heart attack? I have always heard that pain in your left arm is bad. What about pain in your right arm or numbness and tingling in your right arm?

It is very unusual to have pain in your right arm during a heart attack. Most women experience pain in the back, jaws, chest area and left arm. Sounds like you could be suffereing from some type of tendon problem such as tendonitis. Check with your doctor to be sure.
