In brief: Possibly

The low back finding could not cause such symptoms, but a c5-6 disc herniation could potentially cause symptoms similar to a heart attack, such as left shoulder and arm pain.
Good question.

In brief: Not usually. See MD

A cervical disc on the left can cause pain in to left shoulder/scapula and in to the arm. The pain can give a patient fatigue if sleep is impaired.
The heart should definitely be evaluated as soon as possible, though, as that could be potentially be life-threatening.
