Chest pain. Should I do investigation by a cardiologist?

Hi there. I am 27 years old. For several years now (about 5) I have had a dull, mild, uncomfortable left chest pain . Not associated with exercise. But pretty constant. Also, a pain in my left wrist . I went a few years ago to the docs and had an EKG and it was apparently normal. Although I was only hooked up to it for like 1 minute. I was told I had a heart murmer the first time I went. Then, apparently, the next time I went I didnt. Should I go back and request a full investigation by a cardiologist? I honestly do think my body is trying to tell me I have a heart problem. What do you think? Thank you Doctor.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

At this young age, congenital heart disease is the most likely cause.
Some heart murmurs can and do disappear.
Probably, a small hole was there and got closed.

The best option is to see a cardiologist - have physical examination / ECG / ECHOcardiogram & basic blood tests.
It is better to have it examined than go on guessing. You are young and have many happy years ahead. Get tested / get reassured.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
