Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, If the ECG you did in XXXXXXX was perfect, and you have been diagnosed with a good strong heart beat, then, there is not need to be worried about. The pain you are feeling will be related to neurological or muscular patterns. So, I'd suggest to: - take otc oral analgesics to reduce pain (paracetamol,ibuprofen,ketoprofen) - if your work involves working in front of the computer for too long; I'd suggest to have several breaks and do some stretching exercises; please stay straight - try to be more physically involved to reduce muscle strain - drink more water - avoid caffeine or energetic drinks - try to cope with stress if you are having a stressful period or work overload - do regular check ups annually All the best!
