What does these symptoms may be ?

One of my friend, a 38 year old female has a problem since two years of having a sudden pain in the chest on the left side, where she feels sharp needles like pain. Ir comes and goes fast. Since the last two weeks it has been there continously. Before that she was having back pain also which shifted from left to right and then was gone. Now she thinks that this pain in the chest is related to that back pain, but I think it is an early symtoms of heart problem. Please keep in mind that her father also has heart problem. Can you please share your views?

It definately sounds like your friend need to see her Doctor ASAP. I'd say it's heart but I'm not a medical person, I've only done some First Aid training. Pain in your chest, radiating to your left arm are one of the best symptoms to identify a heart problem. I hope she's allright!
