I'm waiting on the doc to call me back but in the mean time while I panic I thought I might ask if anyone had similar experiences. I'm 10.5 weeks and experiencing pain (like muscular) in my left arm and have tender abdomen and mild lower back discomfort. confused

Sorry, no helpful information, but didn't want to leave you hanging! Has the doctor called you back yet? My tummy is tender and a little bit painful and has been all throughout (am 14 weeks now), but I'm not sure about the arm and back thing. Hope you get some answers soon!

I had arm pain aswell around that time, it was upper arm, difficult to explain, not really sure if it's the same thing. Hope everyting is ok,

Thanks for the advice- the GP did call and said arm pain isn't a concern unless the arm is swollen or discoloured. Pain in the shoulder tip at 4-5 weeks can be a sign of ectopic pregnancy and should be checked out. Though a google search has revealed that many women get arm pain but Dr could not explain why this is....

I'm prone to panic at the moment...
