Any time you are having chest pain, it is a good idea to go get checked out. If your left arm is numb also, it could be your heart. I would chew an aspirin, and head to the emergency room. Call an ambulance if you don't have anyone to drive you. Don't worry about the money. They have to treat you, and you don't have to pay now. Work out a payment plan later. Better to be safe! Good Luck!
