New Pain
CarolinaGirl300 posted:
About two or three days ago, I started having pain on the outside of my left arm pit -- it goes a little into my arm and my chest. It hurts to raise my left arm.

Is this anything potentially related to my heart? I do not have health insurance and cannot afford to go to the doctor unless it's a sympton of something serious.

Sorry, but there is no way for any of us to know what is causing your symptoms. You need to find a free or low-cost clinic for an evaluation and treatment. If it seems like an emergency, then go to a local hospital emergency room. They can not deny you treatment because you can't pay.

I would urge you to see a doctor somewhere soon. Never second guess chest pain. Get is checked out asap.

I hope you can get treatment and relief soon.
