Brief Answer: Possibility due to compression of nerve Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Left arm pain can be cardiac related, so I will advise to rule out any cardiac pathology by doing ECG and if required 2-D ECHO. Another possibility due to compression of nerve root there is pain in your arm I will advise you to MRI cervical spine for better diagnosis. For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication can be started. Till time, avoid lifting weights. You can consult physiotherapist for help. Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief. I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level. Hope this answers your query.
