What is this pain on the left side of my body
i am experiencing numbness of my left arm and left side of my face,is this serious??
It is important that you seek medical attention for these symptoms. Numbness of the left arm and face could be due to a problem in the brain, or alternatively can be signs of decreased blood flow to the heart.
