For the past week, my chest has been hurting consistently. There's numbness in my left arm, sharp pains, a burning feeling, and stiffness. Any idea?

Possible disc injury: Being 21 years old makes it unlikely that this pain is cardiac in nature. More likely you have a disc injury in your neck which is causing this issue.

I recommend you see a spine specialist. ...Read more

Get checked: Most probable cause of your pain seems to be from a pinched nerve in the neck. Although you are somewhat young for this to happen, sudden heavy lifting, sudden twisting of the neck or an accident of anysort could be the cause.
