Any injury: Sounds like muscle pain especially if the movement of the left shoulder and arm can reproduce the pain having said that it is not possible to exclude the cardiac pain there are associated symptoms like sweating generalized tiredness shortness of breath that can be associated with cardiac episode if you are concerned about it the be safe and contact your primary care doctor good luck.
