Good afternoon, I’m mas John. u003cbr / u003e I feel chest pain, but sometimes it feels, sometimes it doesn’t. The things that can affect directly, namely cold temperatures (when it is raining or exposed to a fan), drinking cold water, sleeping on his stomach, and sleeping with both hands straight on the head. The most severe effect is pain in the arm at the top of the elbow and a small lump in the armpit. But after the discipline of sleeping in a normal position, all died down, the bumps were gone.

Thank you for the question.
Pain in the left chest that radiates to the forearm which is lost can occur due to various triggers. If complaints occur especially when exposed to cold temperatures, sleep on his stomach, and sleep raising his hands to the side of his head, it is likely that the focus of the problem is on the muscles, joints, and nerves around your chest, armpits, or arms. These components can be disrupted for example due to lack of nutrition, inflammation, injury, pinched by infection or tumors, autoimmune disorders, and many other triggers.
Can also, chest pain that you feel occurs due to other triggers, for example heart attacks, pleurisy, pneumothorax, bronchitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, infection or inflammation of the skin, psychological disorders, and so on. Lumps that appear in your armpits, if it also feels painful, could be one of the triggers of the emergence of pain in the chest to your arms. These lumps can be caused by inflamed lymph nodes (lymphadenitis), skin infections, benign or malignant tumors, and many other triggers.
We, without checking you directly, of course it is not right to ascertain the diagnosis of the cause of your complaint, is it really due to a nerve disorder, or precisely because of another trigger. To be clear, you try to check yourself back to the doctor. If necessary, the doctor will be able to do supporting tests, such as x-rays, heart records, ultrasound, biopsy, blood tests, and so on. You can also be referred to a neurologist or internal medicine for further treatment.
In the meantime, you can first handle the treatment according to doctor's advice. Not only that, for pain to improve, try to apply warm compresses first, multiply rest, eat more regularly, reduce first if there are foods / drinks that make the pain feel heavy, avoid cold and also avoid body positions that make your chest pain heavy, discipline to exercise and relax, don't stress or worry too much, don't smoke, and don't forget to be disciplined to live a healthy lifestyle in your everyday life.
