For several days now...

For several days now, my right arm has been hurting, not sharp pains but pretty constant. I know one of the arms, I don’t remember which one. I had a good friend that died because he had pain in his arms. He didn’t do anything about it, and he died of a heart attack. He was my age, 65.That’s why I’m concerned.

Doctor's Assistant: When did the pain begin? Have you used any medication for it?

I’m guessing about Wednesday. It’s pretty constant, but comes and goes a little bit. It hurts during the night as well. it’s enough to wake me up. I’ve been taking some Tylenol and & @ other times, some 800 mg ibuprofen.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the pain?

I haven’t. I saw a doctor for some other reasons, a few days ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Yes, I am a diabetic type ll. i’m on several medications for it, including Invokana, and Trulicity, which is a weekly injection.I’ve only been on it for two weeks

A couple weeks ago I had a tooth infection. Pretty serious one, that caused a lot of swelling on my face. I was given antibiotics, and I took them and finished the prescription. I’m also a medication for cholesterol, which keeps it in the normal range. My blood pressure is good averaging 120/80.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Pain from heart or angina can be referred to arm.
Usually it is to the left arm.
Rarely it is to the right.
There can be muscle strain, pinched nerve too.
Your blood pressure is within normal limits.
Though your symptom does not sound like heart issues, still I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
An EKG, echo, blood work can be taken to be on safe side.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I still can’t find the rating button.
The last time I was trying, I pushed the back arrow, and it took me out, and I couldn’t get back in.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
