Dear Ma'm
A pain which comes on exertion, is behind the breastbone and relives by rest is likely to be anginal or heart related. A pain which is not increasing or provoked by exercise, increases by certain posture, touch or pressing, can be localized to a finger tip, increases by deep breathing is not likely to be anginal.
If you have a persistent pain please see your doctor and proceed accordingly. It may not be related to heart but still needs evaluation.
