Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi I just have him on the phone. He said the pains in his arm going to chest. There's no tingling but the pain starts in his foot first which triggers pain in arm and chest. This started over a year ago and he went hospital did tests and made him do exercise but said arteries are fine. Painkillers used are paracetamol. He said body not numb just toes.
He has no diagnosed medical problem. His blood tests have come back clear.
Thank you for your reply. Just wanted to ask how is this related to the spine and and how serious is this? I am worried that he gets pain in arm and chest - could this cause heart attack or stroke?
He is a taxi driver so sitting down most the day too and when this happens he sweats. He doesn't use that foot as automatic vehicle but needs to keep shoe off due to pain. He also has to remove dead skin regularly to help ease pain.
Could this be linked to anxiety at all?
In hospital he was made to do exercise on machine with wires attached to him monitoring his heart but it was ok.
Please let me know if there may be any other potential causes/diagnosis
