In addition to your shoulders, arms, neck, mouth, belly, and back. You may experience discomfort in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, abdomen, and back. This pain might mimic the symptoms of dyspepsia. Furthermore, some persons do not experience pain but do have other symptoms such as shortness of breath or weariness.
