Pain: Left arm pain doesn't need to relate to the heart. In fact more commonly it is due to neck or shoulder problems which are felt in the arm.

Agree w/ colleague. If your arm or shoulder hurts when u move your arm/ shoulder than more than likely it is emanating from here... If it doesn't ; see your primary care physician ... Good Luck!

Many Possibilities: Although you are young, we can't forget that left arm pain can be referred from other places such as the heart, cervical spine, etc. There certainly are many other possibilities such as referred shoulder pain, but if you haven't seen a physician i would recommend starting with your regular doctor first to narrow the possibilities.
