Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
I am a general physician and read you mail in detail. I would like to know mare about your history like
1. your age, weight, height.
2. Family history.
3. Any heart disease you are suffering from?
4. Pain in left side lasts for what time period and by what remedies you get relief.
5. Has ECG done or not.
Now coming to your query and detail you have given, there is more possibility of a simple gastritis pain as your SGOT, SGPT and GGT are raised. These all are Liver function test which are in abnormal range, so you have to take some liver tonic like Udiliv or Liv.52 and investigated for Hepatitis.
Other possibility may be cardiac pain as it radiates to shoulder and left arm.
Consult your doctor ASAP and investigated properly. Answer my question in a follow up query, I will be happy to answer it.
Best Wishes
Dr. Dinesh Kumar Bhatia
