In brief: Doctor or Emergency
Left arm pain is like chest pain in significance.
Better safe than sorry. It could be heart pain, threatening a heart attack, or it could be something else. The purple hands might or might not be important. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but get her to a doctor before the weekend.
