Answer to your Health Question

Question: I have severe shooting pain from underneath my left arm radiating toward the center of my chest. What could this be? Patricia

Answer: Dear Patricia,

Every time a person suffers from chest pains it is important to visit the doctor in order to rule out heart problems. Usually chest pain radiates to the arm and shoulder area.

Muscle spasms can also be a cause for the pain mentioned above. Causes for muscle spasms include:

- Muscle fatigue
- Excesive exercising
- Dehydration
- Hypothryroidism
- Medications
