of pain after angioplasty may be muscular as pain increasing with movement, but yo can not ignore as some times pericarditis can cause this type of symptoms, so first undergo ECG if it does not show any fresh ischemic , pericarditis features , you can try analgesic for that pain after consulting a cardiologist.
