You are having a heart attack! Take a aspirin and get to the hospital as soon as possible. I will drive you there. Stay calm and we will make it.

If your left arm and chest are sore, call 911 immediately- you may be having a heart attack or entering cardiac arrest. Other symptoms are swollen feet, headache, and fever. Do not wait.

If there is no tingling or numbness, it is likely not a precursor to a heart attack. It could be anything from a simple pulled muscle, to sleeping wrong, to a strain. If you are experiencing any tingling or numbness, get yourself checked out by a doctor ASAP. If there is simply soreness, ibuprofen is a great anti-inflammatory.

musculoskeletal pain? Does it hurt when you push on it? If the pain lasts and gets worse get an EKG and check for elevated cardiac enzymes
