      I think you need to check in with your doctor about the pain you are experiencing maureen.

      The only pain I have experienced, is when I have a lung infection, for me this type of pain has been,  in the lungs, round the back and chest.  

      I would say try to see you doc asap, if its a lung infection it needs treating quickly as it will get worse and could result in further lung damage.

      Pain down the arm can be associated with a few other problems, which also need checking.

      Best to get this seen to before Christmas.

    Hi Maureen

    Generally I take Paracetamol or Ibroprofen, but seriously, I think you need to see your doctor.

    Hi Maureen, I get the pains you describe when I'm starting to come down with a chest infection. I take paracetamol and ibuprofen alternately. I go to the doctor's asap before it gets any worse. Also drink lots of honey and lemon juice in hot water.

    Do you mean chest pain?   The only time I've had this was prior to diagnosis and when I've had pneumonia, the first time to the extent that I thought I was having another heart atack & called the ambulance to go to hospital.   I had no idea Ihad pneumonia, as apart from a very slight cold the chest pain was the only syptom.

    ALL chest pain should be investigated URGENTLY
