Sometimes I get a sharp pain my left upper arm

Sometimes I get a sharp pain my left upper arm and heart at once but its short lasting. Is this a 3 attack? I get a pain in my heart and upper left arm at the same time and its very sharp but very fast. Ive only got it maybe 3 times at most and I know arm pain is supposed to be associated with heart attacks and I m wondering if these feelings are mild heart attacks or of maybe it something less severe. I ve had an EKG done and though mt heart beat was irregular that s all that was found. Could this be a sign of bad cirrculation perhaps as well? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Chest pain should always be taken seriously.If you are not allergic I would take 300mg of Aspirin (to thin any clots).Take your GTN and Call an ambulance ... It is safer to get to the ED by ambulance then arrest in the back of a car. The quicker you get to hospital the better your chances of survival. You may need a clot buster. At any rate you will need an ecg, blood test (for cell damage), oxygen, pain relief and review by Cardiologist. You may only have angina however remain nil by mouth as a coronary angiogram/plasty or other surgical procedure may be decided. Also lay semi upright and have some one do the calling. The less energy used the more oxygen supplied to your heart. Alison S.
