A partially blocked artery like you have can cause pain as it restricts the blood flow.  While having a lot of stress can cause these problems, it is also hard on your heart.  Taking that much Motrin for any length of time will eventually damage your liver and may be what is causing your stomach pain as it can cause ulcers, stomach bleeding, stomach discomfort. It can also cause nervousness which you don't need. Adderall (adderrall) is a stimulant which I'm not sure you need either, especially with some hardening in a vessel. I would immediately address this with your doctor. But if it hurts to lift your arm then your pain is muscle related, and not your heart. If it was your heart then you would experience pain with any exertion and it would stop when you stopped exerting yourself. You truly need to reduce the stress in your life (easier said than done), exercise, and eat healthy.  But I would also want a second opinion in regards to pain management.  A small blockage is not serious so long as you exercise, and eat healthy, no trans fat, etc.  But just as importantly is addressing the anxiety and stress in your life.  I'm not convinced that you are on a good combination of drugs, and would seek a second opinion for your own piece of mind.  Yes, he is the doctor but they still call the guy that graduates at the bottom of his class in med school...doctor.  There are good ones and bad ones.  Hope this helps and take care.
