Heart Attack?
My fiance has been having a strange shoulder pain accompanied by difficulty breathing as well. He describes the pain as if though someone is crushing his shoulder. He has been to a pharmacist who gave him a muscle relaxnant.He has been under heavy stress at work and i feel this has contributed. Could this be a heart attack or the onset of heart problems, his father died of heart complications.

Dear Lynne
This could be a heart pain - rather let your GP do an ECG and some blood tests to exclude angina
