intermittent left arm pain

I am a 45 y/o female. I work a somewhat stressful job and I have recently gotten married. For the past month I have been experiencing an intermittent pain in my left arm. It feels like water flowing from my shoulder down my arm and increasingly constrictive. I cannot use my left hand when this happens and I sometimes feel a slight "hugging" sensation in my chest at that time. The pain is increasing in frequency (happening several times a day) and is very painful almost to the point of tears. I figure it is stress induced but I was curious as to what to do to relieve these symptoms.

Hi,
Your symptoms suggest some pathology of the arterial supply to the limb with addition to neuropathic features secondary to vascular pathology.
Probably there could be some compression at the level of root of neck.
You require a proper clinical examination
and should seek an appointment with your physician at the earliest.
Best wishes..
