I've been experiencing a dull ache in my shoulders, almost like my arm is asleep. Also in the sternum area.?

Testing is needed. Shoulder and chest pain could be heart disease or angina, but also can be musculoskeletal or a neurologic (nerve) problem. Shoulder pain can also represent gallbladder pain. Additional testing and discussion with your doctor can help sort this out.

See an MD. When does it occur, is it associated with exertion/activity and relieved by rest? How old are you, do you have other medical problems, or a family history of anything? Depending on the answers to these questions it could be ischemic heart disease, or many other more benign conditions...See a doc.

More info. When does this occur? If it occurs with exertion/activity and is relieved by rest it could be related to ischemic heart disease. I would recommend you see a doctor. There are several other things that this could be; however without further information, I would suggest seeing a doctor.
