Numb Feeleeling In Upper Right Chest With Burning Sensation Spreading Down Inner Right Arm?

I have a numb feeling in my upper right chest with a burning sensation spreading down inner right arm. What could be causing this?

Answer

Hi Leon,

I recommend you contact your physician to be evaluated. Here is a link to information on the signs/symptoms of a heart attack you may want to review and compare to what you're experiencing. Heart attacks aren't always as dramatic and obvious as they seem on television; they can be much "quieter" but still cause tremendous damage to the heart muscle. I've also included some other links.
