I am getting severe pain on the left side of the shoulder and chest for the past four days. Is this a cardiac problem?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Any left-sided chest pain should not be ignored. A history of lifting heavy weight, strenuous work, exercise etc., might also cause shoulder and chest pain. There are chances of pain radiating to the arm and chest due to cervical spondilosis (neck pain). Follow these simple steps:
1. Use a low cotton pillow.
2. Lie down straight in the bed.
3. Do not place your arm underneath the head.
4. Avoid straining and exerting yourself.
Get a complete hemogram, chest X-ray, X-ray of the cervical spine and ECG (electrocardiogram) done.
