Chest and arm pain

Ok..For about a month and a half i have been experiencing pain in the left side of my chest (localized..somewhat sharp pain). Also pain sometimes down my left arm (sometimes like muscle pain..sometimes like joint pain) and shoulder..I am 23 years old...Don't smoke, don't drink..I have an athletic build...I have had 2EKGs, both normal ( i have an usual BP around 11.5-6 and HR of 54-62) and also I had my heart checked by a cardiologist (the doc said there's no sign of any trouble with my heart). Could it be spine problems? ..or something else? My blood tests were also perfect.

How many cigarettes do you smoke? Nature of job and posture can give rise to such problems. Consult your ortho surgeon + some physiotherapy. Panic attack/anxiety neurosis, also precipitate such syptoms.

Hi I ve been getting pain in my chest . It started late August with sharp pains on my right below the breast . When I first felt it it was at night and I was trying to sleep and thought it would be gone by morning. I felt the pain again during the next day and intermittently since and nothing I can identify as triggering it. Once when I was lying down and I got really uncomfortable pain that I felt in the back of my chest. Also the sharp pain at the side of my chest changed and I started to feel it when I put/stretched my arm up. The side pain seems to have stopped but now I get this twinge pain in the centre of my chest when I lean/bend forward.

I m having chest pain and pain in both arms (worse in left). The arm pain comes and goes every couple of seconds and periodically throughout the day my left arm feels really warm. I ve been to the ER three times in the last six months with anxiety attacks. I have had several EKGs done in the last six months which were perfectly normal. I don t feel anxious about anything other than the symptons I have that feel like a heart attack.

How long will joint pain last after taking doxycylcine hydate? I took the medication 2 times a day for seven days for chlamydia. After taking a single dose of antibiotics, the std did not go away. So I waited about three months or more and tested positive for Chlamydian again. So the Dr. prescribed me doxyxylcine. On a couple of occasions, mostly morning, I had nausea. One of the mornings I went to grab the remote and got an alarming pain in my left elbow on both sides of the joint (bicep/tricep). And it has continued to spread throughout my other joints on both sides: knees, knuckles, and elbows. I stopped taking the medication on 5-28-14. I d like to know what s the usual recovery time from this side effect if at all? I work out and I have had to stop all activity due to this problem.

My husband has nausea, stomach cramps and diahorrea, along with generally feeling "unwell". Symptoms have persisted for 5 days or more. He is 53 years old and usually in reasonable health, although he takes medication for high blood pressure and sometimes diclofenac for arthritic-type joint pain. He is a smoker (pipe) and fairly heavy drinker (cider, 4-6 pints per day). He is also a coarse fisherman (lakes and rivers) and works in a dog day-care centre. Any ideas?
