We report a man who presented anterior chest pain with mild weakness of both hands while swimming. Initially, he was admitted to the department of internal medicine for evaluation and management of suspected myocardial infarction. Cardiac evaluations including coronary angiogram showed the patient to be normal. Spinal MRI showed a hyperintense signal on the sagittal T2-weighted images at the cervical spinal cord (C6-7). When a patient with chest pain shows weakness in both arms, not only cardiac evaluation but also spine work up is needed.
