Left arm pain

I've suddenly been feeling pain in my left arm and haven't worked out in 4 days and on 28/11/17 started to feel pain in my left arm it feels tighter than usual. I don't feel chest pain so I'm not sure if its heart related but I am worried.

I feel pain in left arm and when I turn my skin it aches I have taken paracetamol and the pain has slightly subsided but can still feel a tingle. I feel sweaty and a little light head.

should I contact 999 in case it's an emergency?
