Pain in left shoulder and arm, throbbing pain above elbow. Heart attack?

I have pain in my left shoulder and arm . I went to the doctor to have it checked out and she said it may be burcitus. She took an x-ray and I m waiting for results. In the meantime the pain has gone from my shoulder down my arm like a throbbing pain right above my elbow . It s so uncomfortable it has woke me up. Should I go to the emergency room? Could it be a heart attack?

That is a possibility but there would need to be further testing. If the doctor told you it was alright to take an antiinflammatory that could be beneficial while you wait for results.

If your pain intensivity increases with moves and palpitation it is not likely to be an heart attack.

I hope I could help you
