Detailed Answer:

Hi
Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Backache is not precursor of heart disease. But it can be sign of ischaemic heart disease. You can visit cardiologist to exclude it as a sign of heart disease. You can also visit orthopedician and get MRI to exclude other causes of low back pain.

You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
