    Can wisdom teeth cause chest pain?

    I went to the ER twice in one week. I’m experiencing terrible chest pains that radiate down my arm and jaw. I’m also experiencing teeth pain on the lower left side. My neck is starting to hurt and im having new pain under my arm pit. I haven’t been sleeping due to the pain.

    Smart Phone Dangers

    I am a 71 year old heart patient. For years I have carried my phone in my left shirt pocket over my heart area. Recently, I have experienced some type of--seems like--electrical current over the area of my chest where my phone was located.
