Our expert says:
If the pain is not exercise related, not a heavy pressing pain with a feeling of shortness of breath and sweatiness ( which could be a sign of heart disease), it could be due to muscle spasm putting pressure on the group of nerves running to your arm and chest. It may be safer to do an ECG just to exclude heart problems, and then see a physiotherapist for an evaluation to see if you need x/rays of your neck and/or referral to an orthopedic specialist.
