I have had problems with chest pain and it goes around my sides and back, but not down my arms. I'm wondering if it is heart problems too. I thought the same thing myself about the chest pains, but I only get them after I have eaten and recently found out chinese food is a trigger for terrible heartburn for me.
My chest pain/heartburn will be so bad that I have to actually take pain pills for it to get it to stop.
