Customer Question

On January 5th I had a heart cath....no blockage or anything...was diagnosed as "broken heart syndrome". The procedure was via right arm. On the 13th I went to an express care for pain, mussel spams, ect., coming from back shoulder mussel down my right arm to the elbow area and less grip in my right hand. From an 1970 gunshot wound to the right shoulder I have a "frozen shoulder" with limited rotation. Is this issue just coincidental or could it be related to heart cath. I never had this type of on going discomfort prior to the heart cath. I am scheduled for a MRI on February 4th.
