What does it mean when Angina “spreads” or “radiates”?

Does it hurt in all areas at once? Or does it start in one area and gradually move to others?

I am young, 28, 5”11 275, Ive lost 21 pounds in the last month. I was in the shower today and had a sudden sharp pressure pain in both sides of my neck, and my upper collarbone area, worstvin my neck sides. And for whatever reason a heart issue came to mind.

However it didn’t last long, and didnt feel like I had to stop my shower or take a break or anything, after a brief window of time it went away, with maybe just a small part of my neck feeling slightly dull and achy. Just wondering if its likely to be a heart issue, angina, or something to not worry about

probably depends on each person.  For many it is like a spreading out from central location.  Are you having chest pain?  Go to ER if you are.

Are you still having this issue?  Did you ever go to the ER?  Can you give us an update?
