It is not only aggravating for the doctor to not call you back, it is dangerous. and any and all medical persons should know that pain in the shoulder could be a heart attack. and until they know better, they need to treat it like a heart attack. better to err on the side of caution. a simple blood test will tell them if you had a heart attack.
My neighbor down the street went to the emergency room because she gained 40 pounds in two weeks. She ended up having by-pass surgery, and was told that she had been having heart attacks for a while, she just didn't know it. Her only symptom was this rapid fluid weight gain.
Not trying to scare you, just very disappointed in your doctor and his staff. To have medical staff ignoring this prevalent symptom of a heart attack, is worse than us ignoring it. they are trained to know. It may have nothing to do with your heart, but best to have this test done if for no other reason, than to rule out heart problems.
Hope the rest of your day is good to you
