Hi, any pain in the chest area should be investigated, as you have pointed out that ECG is normal,I will still advise you to go for exercise stress testing as ECG can be normal in cases of initial stages of coronary ischemia.
if the exercise stress testing is normal , then the thorough check up for local cause should be done along with checking for the arthritis .
