Looking to your age it should not be.It seems that there is some compression of nerve somewhere,in cases extra rib that can lead to this.The nerves when get irritated causes the discomfort in the area that they cover. But as a precaution see your doctor and get your bp checked and ecg done.And if this is normal go for an x ray of cervical spine.
