Patient :Hi I have been having a persitant pain in the line below my chest for 6 days now. I believe the reason might be because I felt down cross country skiing 6 days ago and I accidently stabbed myself with the walking pole in this area. I just want to make sure this is why I feel this pain. It definitely feels worse when I make abrupt movements or when I sleep on the left side. Today I also woke up because I felt my left arm was completely numb but again I m not sure if this is because of an ackward movement while sleeping. Can this be related to heart at all?
