Is pain in arm and shoulder linked to heart pain?

Hi, I m 31 years old female which is on average weight and active and it s been about 2 months now I m feeling a sharp pain in my hard but that s not it right after the sharp pain follows a numbing feeling on my left side finger tips and recently the same is happening on my thigh and toes. Yesterday something out of the blue happened, someone put me down so bad that I was heartbroken and angry but I kept it within and few seconds later I couldn t lift up my right arm, it was feeling very heavy and a sharp pain, everytime I lifted my arm my shoulder would hurt, is this linked to the heart? Thank you for your time

Hi welcome to HCM
I understand your query and concern.
Your symptoms are related to infarcts in the brain-paralytic stroke secondary to accelerated hypertension due to anxiety.Immediately get MRI BRAIN to look for location and size of clots.Drugs like Strocit,anti platelets,antihypertensives,lipid lowering drugs,anxiolytics will be helpful.Avoid anxiety and stress which will harm your health.You may need physiotherapy to relieve your weakness.Anxiolytics for short term can be pretty useful in your case.Consult your neurologist for expert management and further queries.Post your further queries if any.
Thankyou
