[h=3]1. Heart[/h]
We presume it to be a heart problem, if it pains around the chest. However, pain around the left arm or the upper middle portion of the back also signifies the same. According to the University of Michigan Medical School, “Cardiac pain is often referred to areas of the body surface which send impulses to the same levels of the spinal cord that receive cardiac sensation. This is true especially on the left side.”
