arm pain with stomach problems

I'm trying to figure out if the arm pain and shoulder pain has anything to do with my stomach.  Frequently a few hours after I eat I start to have sharp arm pains and aches that go from my shoulder down to my hand.  My stomach gurgles and churns but other than that I have no other symptoms of heart burn or anything else.  I have had every test done to my heart, echo, EKG's, stress tests and the doctors say I don't have any problem.  Is it possible to have arm pain related to your stomach?

I have esophagitis and get left side chest pain, shoulder pain and sometimes back and arm pain.  I have had an echo, EKG, cardiac enzymes, Chest X-ray etc.  All they have found is the espohagitis.  At least that has been my experience.  I, too, never have any heartburn.

Thanks, that makes me feel a whole lot better.  I will have to check that out as a possibility.   I'm glad I'm not the only one whose had this issue.  Even though I had all those tests done on my heart I still thought something was wrong with it.  I'm 29 years old, I don't need to have anything wrong in that area.  Thanks so much!!
