The Armpit Of My Left Arm And Left Side Of Chest Burn Alot, Whats Wrong!?

Recently, for the past 4-6 months my left armpit and left saide of my chest around my heart seem to burn and feel weird, like tender to the touch its not a horrible pain or anything, just discomfort. It happens most of the day, also when I put my hand over my heart, my heartbeat doesnt feel too strong at all. I can spit up mucus on demand, which has also been going on for awhile, its clear and very sticky. I havent smoked in months, I barley drink, and im 21. please help enlighten me.

Hi Ims940,

Left arm or armpit pain and left sided chest pain definitely warrant you seeing your physician as soon as possible.

Symptoms of a heart attack

While you are young, it is still possible to have heart problems.

Best of luck,
