Discomfort, pain in left arm, numbness, arm falling asleep. Cause of worry?

I m a 55 year old male. I ve been suffering with a uncomfortable and sometimes painful sensation in my left arm , as if it were asleep. The only thing that I ve tried is to shake it out or just wait it out. I m not sure what it is but I know it s not pleasant. I m using this site to start the process instead of going to my family doctor with a waiting room full of flu suffering patients. Do you have any suggestions?
