At 29 years of age: The odds are in your favor, but I see under your "Conditions" you have listed coronary artery disease. If you've already had a heart attack or diagnosed with CAD - which is exceptionally rare - I wouldn't mess around with exertional based left arm pain. Review this with your doc.
