Brief Answer: Not from the heart... Detailed Answer: Hi, The pain that you describe does seem to be from the heart. Pain originating from the heart are far more devastating than just uncomfort. Your description of pain may due to muscular reasons or other non specific cause. If the pain persist to trouble you after brief period of rest, you can try paracetamol forumulas such tablet dolo 650mg. You may also see a physician and consider chest x-ray to exclude lung/chest wall issues. Be rest assured, it doesn't seem to be a serious heart ailment. Hope this helps. Warm regards
