My 59 year old boyfriend had a heart attack a few weeks ago. He is ok. For quite a while before, he had been experiencing bilateral shoulder pain. Was that somehow related? Some kind of precursor? Thanks.
Yes, it could have been. Some people have very atypical pain and end up having a heart attack. Most of the time if you are having any type of shoulder pain that radiates down your arm our up into your jaw, it could be a precursor/sign of an impending heart attack. Hope he continues to do well.
