My chest has hurt lately, and it's a little hard to breathe. I am having numbness in both my arms (they are tingling like they are asleep) any clue?

Well the first thing that comes to mind is costochondritis-an inflammation in the cartilage that connects your ribs. It can cause chest pain and pressure that can also go into your arms. Since you are a vegetarian anemia can definitely be a possibilty as well as a B12 deficiency.
It could also be Thoracic Outlet Syndrome where muscles can compress nerves and blood vessels causing those symptoms. It's fairly common and if not advanced can be easily remedied with stretching and massage therapy.
