First, it’s essential to know that sudden pain in one or both arms could be a sign of a heart attack. Pain occurs because oxygen is abruptly cut off due to a blockage in the heart that prevents blood from flowing into the muscle.
Other symptoms of a heart attack include chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, nausea, and dizziness. If you have these symptoms, call 911.
Arm and shoulder pain may also be the result of angina, a condition caused by heart disease that decreases blood flow. Tightness in your chest might make it feel as though you’re having a heart attack. Call your doctor for advice about how to avoid a heart attack caused by angina.
