In brief: See your doctor

While this may be a musculoskeletal cause, any pain that radiates to the chest area should immediately be evaluated by a medical professional to rule out any cardiac causes.

In brief: More questions

Need to know character, duration, quality, aggravating, relieving factors, associated symptoms.
Etc. Could be pinched nerve anywhere from spine to arm. Also other structures like joint etc need to be examined.
