Our expert says:
The shoulder and chest pain that you experience is also known as 'referred pain'. Some organs are supplied by the same set of nerves, and when, for example, you experience pain in the stomach due to the ulcer, you can also experience pain in the shoulders and chest. I would, however, urge you to have tests done to make sure that your cardiovascular system is functioning well, especially because you have heart disease in the family. Good luck.
