Headache And Left Arm And Shoulder Pain

Chest pain, left shoulder blade pain?

I rarely say this, but please seek immediate medical attention. While it may be just heartburn or a sore muscle or something else, a distinct sign of a heart attack is pain that radiates from the chest to the left shoulder / arm.

Don't wait and take a chance.

note: obviously, if this is a constant pain and not some kind of sudden onset, the previous answers are a lot more likely. and, yes, while it's highly unlikely a 15-year-old would have a heart attack, it is possible.

Pain in left Neck, should, and arm?

I would seriously think about going to the doctor and get some tests done to either rule out or determine if you are having heart problems! It might not be heart, there are other things.

Guru, you contradicted your self. You said to go get heart problems ruled out. Then in turn you said it is not heart problems. You do not know unless there have been some test ran! Other than that good answer!

Other things it could be is maybe you put your shoulder out of place. They are real painful, I've been there via car accidents. The best with them is to hope the shoulder goes back in on its own soon. And take pain killers prescribed by the doctor, and also therapy might help.

It also could be arthritis. I know ppl think arthritis is old ppl's disease, but not necessarily! Arthritis you can get at any age. Again some meds from your doctor and maybe some physical therapy.

To help, also try either moist heat or ice. Try each one one time and the other the next time to see which one works best. If you feel like it is inflamed try ice first until inflammation is gone. Then try moist heat.

But first and mostly go get checked out at the doctors or ER!!!

Good Luck!

Pain on left side of head, neck, and shoulder.?

You have tight neck muscles on that side to cause those pains. The neck muscles go to the top of your head but also connect with most muscle groups in the head so if something is wrong with the neck it will cause problems else where as well to cover the facial sensations on that side. The neck muscles may also be sending the pain into your shoulder, it's hard to say for sure but there's a very good chance of that. To get rid of these pains you have to free up your neck muscles and here's how to do that:
Neck Release:
Place your hands behind your head touching your fingers. Press into the back of your neck with them and hold the pressure on them. After 30 seconds slowly lower your head until your neck is fully extended. Release the pressure but hold your head there for another 30 seconds. repeat if needed. For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.

Pain in right shoulder that spreads down right arm?

I am a 26 year old female, non-smoker, 5'-11" and 145 lbs. For the last month I have been having sharp pain in my right shoulder off and on. The pain randomly occurs, it doesn't seem to be associated with anything I am doing or eating, it just comes on randomly and generally lasts more than 24 hours. The pain is intense and deep in my shoulder it also runs down my right arm and but most of the pain is concentrated in my shoulder. Its not a pain you can located by touching my shoulder, it almost feels like its in my veins?
I have never had anything like this before and I at first thought it would go away but it keeps reoccuring. Is this something I should be extremely concerned about. Any information at all would be great. Thank you very much.

How can you treat a dull aching pain in my left arm?

As others mentioned it can be anything ranging from a very serious problem to a minor one.The first step in getting better is to find out what is wrong.History of the problem and the symptoms are a clue, but don't provide a definitive diagnosis of what is causing the symptom.

Is neck pain, shoulder pain and arm pain a sign of HIV?

You keep asking the same question in different ways, you need to stop that.No, those are signs of about 1000 things (muscle aches, too much exercise, exhaustion, heart attack, etc) but have nothing to do with HIV. There are NO physical signs of HIV until terribly late in AIDS infection.

Pulled neck/shoulder muscles causing headaches?

Your back muscles are tight to pull into the shoulder area. To get rid of that pain you have to free up your back muscles to release the ones pulled tight and here's how to free them up:
Back:
(do while sitting on a chair)
Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front, and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm as straight as possible. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, then release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
headaches are caused by tight neck muscles. The muscles go to the top of your head where they connect to muscles going around your head. When the neck muscles get tight they pull the head muscles into pain and that's your headache. To get rid of the pain you have to free up your neck muscles to release the ones pulled tight and here's how to free them up:
Neck:
Place your hands behind your head so your fingers meet in the middle of your neck. Press into the neck with a moderate pressure and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your head as far as you can, then remove the pressure from the muscles but continue holding your head down for another 30 seconds.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
