My mom has a shoulder pains and is a stroke victim of almost 20 yrs

My mum has been complaining about pains in her left shoulder and arm for about 3-4 weeks now. Also weakness in her hand also. She s elderly , has a number of other health problems but is a stroke victim of almost 20 yrs. She thinks it could be related to a heart attack? Does anyone have an idea what it could be? Sensible answers only, thank you!

My ex father in law had to go to hospital for scans and things and they told him his heart was very scarred and had probably had several minor heart attacks. Get her checked out by GP or at hospital. UK ACTION MAN you are very rude ,have more respect for the elderly. That's what the world is short of today

i was in a car accident like 2 months ago, broke a few bones, had surgery(hip and femur)a month later i began feeling left chest pains, left arm pains...typical heart attack symptoms in other words. last night was the 5th time i went to the e.r. thanks to this pains and again they found nothing wrong with me or my heart so i guess the ekg and mri were all good. the pain is still there on a daily basis my parents refuse to take me to the hospital they think i m insane. my questions are can my heart be bruised or enlarged?or that would have been ruled out with the ekg and mri?they said its not my lungs but the pain is on left back also, could it be only muscle pain?i don t have insurance and all this medical assistance is pretty expensive. if anyone could please get me on the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, this pain is so stressing it feels like a tickle on my lung or heart and i m scared if overlooked it will kill me. by the way i m a 19 yr old grl and nobody in my family has any kind of medical problems....
