Radiating Pain

Another symptom that is commonly associated with angina pectoris is radiating pain. This is when the pain in the chest radiates into the neck, jaw, shoulders and upper arms. This pain has similar characteristics to the associated chest pain, in that it is dull and achy. It may make the arms feel heavy.

Radiating pain that is caused by ischemia is commonly felt at the tip of the right shoulder. Pain in this area can be a warning sign of an imminent heart attack.
