side of neck shoulder arm and the back side of my chest.
I feel some kind of pressure on the left side of my body
I feel like my left arm is heavy. Is it a heart problem or gastric problem

Answer
Hi Anisha,
I don't know. You have an obesity risk factor, but at your age I'd be concerned less about your heart or your stomach, than other causes such as a pulmonary embolism:

You need to be checked by your doctor!
Hope this helps,
