the pain is on the left side mostly but also the middle of chest, I have noticed that it's a little harder to breath and a little uncomfortable and I've been having numbness in arms and legs for about 2-3 years, my chest would hurt a bit when i layer down but it is really bothering me now for few days



Thanks for quick input.

It is possible that you may be suffering from Angina pain. Angina usually starts with chest pain or tightness .This pain can be felt as dull, heavy, tight or severe. Also pain and discomfort may spread to your jaw, neck, arms, back or stomach.
One may feel sick or shortness of breath.

You need to undergo few tests-
-Blood tests, such as a blood count, glucose and cholesterol level and specific blood tests for heart damage.
-EKG should be done.

Further management will be advised after clinical examination and tests.I suggest that you should not delay and rush to ER ASAP.

Having generalized numbness in arms and legs for long time, can occur with any of these possibilities-

- Low levels of thyroid hormone.,
- Abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body.
- Decrease in vitamin B12 levels.
- Pressure on the spinal nerves, or pressure on Peripheral nerves.

You will be requiring few tests for exact diagnosis. These are-

•Complete blood count
•Electrolyte level
•Thyroid function tests
•Measurement of vitamin levels
•Blood sugar tests.
Also ElectroMyography may be considered.

Your present symptoms, should not be left ignored, and i suggest that you should not delay and rush to ER ASAP.
