Hallo Anon
It could have an association with something irritating the diaphragm at the LEFT like a pneumonia or infection (but not the liver or gall bladder which would give pain on the Right side) It may also be associated to a trigger point in a muscle in the back or neck. Pain in the L arm could also be due to heart problems ( angina)
