Brief Answer:
Muscle related issue likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The dull ache below the pectoral , left leg and arm is not likely to be related to a nerve issue or trapped gas or reflux. This is more likely to be a muscle related issue. Inactivity and loss of proper muscle tone can also cause such an ache with routine activities. Mild pain killer and hot compress with application of local analgesic gel can help you. Doing regular stretching exercises after the pain subsides will also help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
