Cardiologist 's  Response

The report is normal and there is nothing specifically in the report which is linked to your pain. Normally, right dome is higher than left, so there is nothing worrisome mentioned in the report.

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.

i am an African man of 42 years of age with 104kg weight and 1.63m height. I have this nagging pain in my left arm extending to the left leg. The temperature of the left arm is higher than right arm. I can feel it its hot. This pain is not severe, it is extremely dull but it borders to numbness. It has been continuing for while. Strangely I only feel it at night especially after 22h00. What may be the cause?
