In brief: Various

Various possibilities though without knowing more information you are best to go to your local emergency room or primary doctor if he/she handles such things and rule out a heart attack.
Once you rule out a heart attack, there are other possibilities including primary shoulder conditions and, given the tingling of your arm, neck conditions. But again, see someone asap just to play it safe.

In brief: There

There are several shoulder problems that cause hand tingling including instability there are also problems with the shoulder that are not shoulder issues but neck issues , associated with shoulder pain and nerve root irritation.
Also as the other post mentioned a heart or lung problem should always be ruled out and all this can only be ruled out by seeing a medical provider.
