Nice to see you
You are a known case of hypertension      ,
Cardiac pain can present in any form ,it can effect jaw or left arm and hands .
Again your age also requires complete cardiac check up.
Test like ECG,Echocardiography or TMT and complete lipid profile done to rule out cardiac problem at this age.
