Hello XXXXXX

Thanks for writing in.

Good to know that your ECG is normal. In view of the normal ECG, other possibilities I can think of are :
1.Breast tenderness related to periods (pre menstrual breast tenderness)
2.Fibroadenoma /cyst in the breast
3.Gastritis/GERD .

You could try over the counter pain medications like paracetamol etc.

Also it would be wise to get your blood pressure, blood sugars , hemoglobin , thyroid function and fasting lipid profile test done.

I would advise you to visit your physician and get a breast examination and relevant investigations done.

Hope this helps.

In case you don't have any further queries, kindly accept my answer. Any reviews are welcome.

Regards,
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan
