Could be nerve: Hard to tell based on limited information. Many times neck and shoulder muscles when injured will cause a radiation of pain in the arm and a sensation of tingling. However, if there is any associated weakness you should be evaluated by a ORTHO/NERUO/PM&R promptly. Also if there is any nausea or sweating with it get to ER for cardiac work up....you are young for that but you never know.

4 days ago I started having random stinging pain in my left arm that has stayed and a dull aching pain in my jaw thats somewhat nauseating. ?

Arm & jaw pain: Without knowing your age, I would recommend you have a medical evaluation now. Arm and jaw pain with nausea are possible indications of angina, which is a problem with blood flow in the arteries of the heart. There are other possibilities, but the serious things need to be ruled out first.
