Apparently, my doctor is stumped on this. During brisk walking, the muscles in my upper arm start to hurt/burn. If I continue, this condition radiates to the muscle layer over the ribs. Mention any chest pain and it's assumed to be heart related. In fact, after passing a Thallium stress test, I've been scheduled for a cardiac catheterization. Nitro does relieve the pain. This has been going on for more than six months and I'm beginning to wonder if threre really is a heart involvement. Comments anyone?
