I have a burning pain in my right forearm about halfway between my wrist and elbow on the underside, right side. I would describe as a shooting pain or stinging pain that happens several times day lasting less than a second. I saw company nurse and she says it does not have carpal tunnel symptoms. My only concern is that I feel a burning pain in my chest, then belch and a pain goes shooting through my forearm. Would this have any relationship to a heart problem? Any explanation between the belching and arm pain?
I'm not a doctor or anything, but sometimes when I have gas pains, I will also get a squeezing pain in my shoulder. I first thought it was a heart attack (except I wasn't having chest pains), but a doctor once told me it was called "referred pain", where something can be going on in one part of your body, but you will feel pain elsewhere. When I get these pains I will lay on my stomach and after burping I will feel much better. Just a thought!
