Welcome to the HCM.

For a person of 37 years without any risk factor like hypertension,diabetes ,a resting heart rate of 85 bpm is absolutely normal.Nothing more to worry about it.

But chest pain that he has after exercise,needs further evaluation by cardiologist.

Cardiologist may advise exercise stress test (trade mill test),color doppler/2 DECHO and coronary angiography to rule out coronary artery ischemia or volvular heart disease though possibility is very less.

Continue healthy eating habits and exercise(after trade mill test).

Avoid alcohol and smoking.

Further queries are most welcome.

Wish you good health.

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
From the description that you have given, it appears that your husband has insufficient cardiac activity. You should see a physician who would like to do a ECG and stress test. If there are any changes in ECG while doing stress test, then one needs to be cautious and start taking some medications. But then things need o wait until he gets himself evaluated.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further details.
Wish you good health.
