Dear customer,

The chances of myocardial infarction should be ruled out first since the heart attack may cause chest pain associated with arm pain.

You should have the 2d echo, ekg and coronary angiography done if required after consulting a cardiologist.

The treatment is according to cause.The other causes like pneumonia, costochonritis, pleurisy etc should also be ruled out.

Thank you
