Throacic outlet: It is possible that you have developed thoracic outlet syndrom. In this condition the nerves and blood vessels that travel from the neck through to the arm get irritated or crowded and you can get upper chest discomfort and then pain and numbness in the arm. See your doctor about this soon.
