Recently I have been having an almost constant headache, as well as almost constant dull pain in both my arms, from my hands to my shoulders. Over the weekend I was admitted to the ER for chest pain, as well as strong dull pain in my jaw and neck (very tender to the touch). EKG's (3!), chest scans and bloodwork revealed nothing. The doctor said it was indigestion and sent me home. Asparin is barely touching my headaches, and the pain in my arms hasn't gone away in over a week. I'm only 27, so doubt this is heart-related, but it does come to mind. Any thoughts as to what may be going on?
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. AT the young age of 27, the possibility of a coronary artery disease (heart disease) is quite less.
However, I'll suggest getting a stress EKG done which is much more sensitive in picking up the hidden disease than the resting EKG. To me, the pain appears to be muscular rather than related to heart/indigestion. Please consult your physician for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
