Question: arm pain

 teter - Sat Jan 08, 2005 8:02 am

a few months ago I noticed a pain in my forearm when I leaned a certain way on it. after about a month I had discomfort in my chest I went to the doctor and he thought it was gerd. The second day after starting nexium I noticed a tingling in my fingers on my left side. I thought the nixum was helping with the chest discomfort it has been about 3 weeks of taking it. In the last several days the chest discomfort is back and the pain in my arm is worse.Sometimes tingling in my arm and pain. I work out on a excersie bike and am active at work ,usually excersie makes it feel better .notice it most when I lay down. has a stress test with cardolite. the stress test went perfect but the pictures showed possible blockage in the bottom of the heart. Doing another to rule out false positive. Any ideas on my arm ???
