Thank you for your query.

As you have not mentioned any details about your previous history and blood pressure I presume that they are normal.

The symptoms that you are describing suggest that you should consult your doctor and get a thorough examination done. If an electrocardiogram is normal then you may require a tread mill test to rule out a cardiac cause of the pain. If the investigations are normal then the pain could be of muscular origin.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please revert back in you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts.

Wishing you an early recovery.
