Both Arms Hurt

Both my arms have beening really hurting. I work with my hand so sometimes my arms hurt. My fingers tingle on my left hand. Could this be signs of a heart attack?

Answer

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,
