Chest pain, tightness on left side, weakness in arms, pain in shoulder blade

When I eat only at supper time I get a sharp moving pain in my chest and a tightness both on my left side, and my left arm becomes feeling weak. The next morning I am sore and it aches in my muscles on my back left shoulder blade. It has only happened twice, but I am 28 yrs old and am overweight . I have three wonderful kids and when it happened the second time it scared me I do not have health insurance as I am just a single mom and student.

Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

More information is required, particularly about other associated problems and co-existing medical conditions.

However, it appears to be either angina while eating (called cibal-angina) or, GERD (gastro-esophageal-reflux disease). Another possibility of Cervicalgia (pain and inflammation of neck, shoulder and chest muscles) cannot be ruled out.

Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he will agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable treatment.

If you find my response helpful and informative, do not forget an “excellent” (5-star rating) to my answer, to ENCOURAGE ALL doctors- engaged in social service- to render sound advice to the FREE queries.

Take care
