Brief Answer: Pain atypical for heart issues,ask for an ECG... Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your query very carefully. The pain that you are experiencing is atypical for heart issues. However a doctor should do an ECG before reaching a more accurate conclusion. So I suggest going again to your doctor and ask for an ECG to be done. After that (if it's normal) stay calm and don't worry, because you have nothing to worry about. It's most probably a muscular pain as your doctor said. Hope it was of help! DR. Benard
