    My husband has been having severe right arm pain, right shoulder pain and pain across his chest.

    The pain goes down the underside of his right arm and under his armpit. Now and then his arm feels cold or numb.While he's having the pain it causes him to breathe slowly. It's been a few weeks, seems to come and go about 4 to 5 times a week. The pain increases with exertion. He is 62 and refuses to go to the doctor.
