Depends. .: It could be from multiple sources. It could be related to compression of nerves stemming from the neck, armpit (axilla), elbow or (less likely) the wrist area. It could be a toxic/nutritional deficit effect on the sensory nerves, though this tends to affect both sides. It could be from a particular issue within a sensory area of the brain (exceptionally unlikely).

Couple possibilities: Numbness under the arm could be the result of pressure over a nerve, pinched nerve in the neck or arm, or even muscle overuse/strain due to poor posture.

Numb arm: Most likely the cause would be in the cervical spine. A disc herniation may cause a nerve to be pinched which feels like heaviness and numbness. If it is accompanied by weakness, you should get medical attention as soon as possible. In the mean time, avoid keeping your neck bent for long, avoid looking down such as reading a book. Avoid a pillow. Try to remember that started it.

Tough to say: Without a good history and Physical exam, especially at 20yo, it is tough to say what your problem was caused by. Generally, numbness and weakness are caused by some nerve issues, and or possible underluying blood flow (vascular) issues that would affect your nerves (similar to pins and needles after sitting on your legs too long).
