Light pain under left breast that goes up my shoulder and down my left arm. Feels like pins and needles but without any chest pain. Is this gas?

Non likely: Pins and needles feeling is called "paresthesia" and is a sign of peripheral neuritis. It can be positional in which case it would come and go.

Also consider a brachial plexus injury. ...Read more
