In brief: Possibly but unlikel

Left arm pain can be a sign of a heart attack, especially if associated with chest pain.
However, at your age, that would be quite unlikely. It would be much more likely for left arm pain to be caused by a musculoskeletal problem such as sprain/strain or pinched nerve. I would recommend you see a physician if symptoms remain worrisome.
