Left arm nerve issue: Heart attack symptoms can cause left arm symptoms, but in a young patient without other issues would be very unusual. It also should not be migraine aura unless this has been part of your aura before. More likely you have peripheral nerve irritation that may be at the elbow (ulnar nerve) or possibly at the brachial plexus or cervical spine. See your doctor if it persists.
Symptoms today are horrible indigestion, numb arm, shortness of breath, feeling weak. I have costochondritis. Is this normal? Heart attack?
Doubt it, but...: No one symptom definitively indicates a heart attack is or is not in progress (many people make the fatal mistake of waiting out atypical heart pain). In fact, "heart pain" is often indistinguishable from esophageal, pericardial, mediastinal, gastric, & chest wall distress. By the same token, where in your gut you have problems may result in very different sensations. See doctor to be reassured.
