Hiya Danc, I've had similar pains in my arm. The doctor always chalks it up to the anxiety.. it can cause tension in the muscle which in turn causes pain or a restless/uncomfortable feeling, which is what i get a lot

Your arm is sitting on the chair arm-rest in same spot, it's pinching some nerves there.

anxiety can cause muscle tension and heart issues so it could very well be anxiety causing these issues

Could be a heart issue.

I have had left arm pain for 6 months so I'm guessing it ain't heart related but my anxiety and depression... I don't know. I really need to go doctors but I am scared it's somethung serious but I guess that's my health anxiety scaring me...
