Thank you for the input.

The shooting pain can be due to nerve related locally. There can be any compression of nerve behind the elbow as it passes through there . Heart stroke pain usually starts at the chest & then radiates to left arm, rarely begins like this . You can take tylenol , apply warmth over the area, keep it at rest, If it persists then you should get it examined by doctor.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your early relief.
