Dull ache left shoulder??


I have been getting a dull ache in my left shoulder for the last few days. It runs pain down my arm like a 'dead leg' sort of pain.

I have read pain in the shoulder is a symptom of eptopic .....but i read its a sever pain which mine isnt!

Am i just being paranoid??

Anyone else getting this??

I had the same thing, so i went to my GP as i had burning sensation cramps too, and also my breathing went funny and still is. He didn't really give me an explanation for the achy arm/cramp, he just said my cramps where normal, and the burning feeling was reflux. Pretty useless if ya ask me, just a good job i've not had anymore. If i were you, i'd definatley go and get checked out hun xxx

No ...no bleedin and only the odd lower abdomen twinge.

Its definately a numb achey arm ( down to my fingers )rather than just a pain on the shoulder tip

I'm only 5 weeks Monday....need to make my 1st docs appointment soon anyway xxx

do you have a midwife yet? I find the doctors pretty useless. The midwife will give you clear "yes and no" answers and you wont get any fog (the doctors tend to be foggy)

Hmmmm, I would be tempted to go to a&e or epu. I had an ectopic and there are so many symptoms, however the shoulder pain going down to your fingers is slightly concerning combined with the abdomen twinge ( I never had any abdominal pain as such, it felt like a stitch).

Just to be sure I would go to a&e or phone nhs 24 (stress to them you are concerned about ectopic and you should be seen quicker.)

Unfortunately an ectopic is not something you can hang about with, it become life threatening very quickly.

I hope its not, and it may well just be unconnected however if you have so much a sa concern you must be seen asap. Mine was misdiagnosed on 2 ocassions and I nearly died due to the delay. Its not worth it! XX
