Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

It might be from sprained muscles (as a result of excessive workouts , pressure or stretching of the arm muscles ) , pinched neck nerves (many times pain in the neck or a pinched nerve there can lead to pain in the upper left arm) , heart problems (many times the first symptom of a heart problem is pain in the left arm ), angina , arthritis and poor posture (this can lead to muscular tension) etc.

If it is due to muscle spasm it will reduce with in week or so, I advice you to reduce the work on that arm and also you can take hot fomentation or pain killing spry can be used.

If does not subside then i advice you to meet orthopedic surgeon for examination, to rule out any pathology in neck and also do an ECG and show that to physician.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
