My left shoulder and upper arm ache. It's not severe pain, more of a burning ache. It is near constant, not brought on or caused by exercise. My neck and back are a mess of knots, could that be causing my shoulder pain? I know shoulder and arm pain can be a sign of heart problems, but I have none of the other classic symptoms. Should I see a doctor?

Mr. lybrate-user, this is natural. You should take some over the counter pain killers like ibuprofen to reduce the pain. If still there is pain and restricted movement, consult an orthopedician to rule out injury. Don't be overwhelmed with workout. Initially, your stamina will be low, therefore increase your capacity gradually.
