My father is experiencing heart problems.

My father is experiencing the situation in which the following things are occurring: 1 - his left arm lifts and his left side hurts 2 - his back is now hurting 3 - he is having trouble breathing sometimes with a sharp pain in his chest like plursy. he had an x-ray of his lungs which showed black but he was a heavy smoker for many many years. I dont know if there is fluid build up as there has not been a doctor returning the reading of the x ray yet today
