    Cheryl:  Arm pain can be from a heart source, but so can muscle, bone, lung, or other chest structures.

     

    Angina is the medical term given to heart related pressure sensation in the chest.  In women, however, the pain not be the typical anginal type pain. 

     

    It's best to contact your doctor to discuss the pain you are having with her/him.

     

    take care,
