    Hi Shan,


    Pain in or around the heart that radiates to the shoulders or back is a symptom of a heart attack. 


    Symptoms of a heart attack


    If you are having this sort of pain, I encourage you to see your physician or go to the emergency room to rule out a heart attack vs muscular pain or lung issues.


    Best of luck,
