Been experiencing a warm/pain sensation in my left pectoral that tends to radiate occasionally across my shoulder?

Hi, im a 21 year old male. Smoker since i was 19.

Been experiencing a warm/pain sensation in my left pectoral that tends to radiate occasionally across my shoulder, down my arm and hand. My hand can get cold sometimes too.
Im thinking it may be a nerve problem as i have minor pain in my neck left side too.

My doctor seems to think its a pulled muscle but i have been experiencing these feelings for over 2/3 months now.

Also, I tend to feel vague alot of the time and used to be a frequent marijuana user until 2 months ago when I quit.

All of this is really decreasing my quality of life and i just want to feel ‘normal’ again.
Is there any advice anyone could give me? Thanks

Hi
I recommend that you do an ECG and heart echo to make sure it is not cardiac related first then you can do a cervical x ray to check for nerve problems
Good Luck

It is either a cardiac issue which can be excluded by doing ECG and echo..
Or a pinched nerve in your neck which can be diagnosed by some physical tests and xray or MRI ..

Hi..
Well, it looks more like a cardiac issue.
Get Ecg and 2D Echocardiography done for confirmation..
If at all it is negative then you can proceed for an MRI for nerve related problems..

But please do not delay to avoid complications..

Regards.
