Brief Answer:
You need to get an echocardiogram done

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Although runners can occasionally get ligament tears, I would not necessarily categorize it as 'normal'. Your slipping out of the pool could be a likely contributor.

Regarding the chest pain, it is very important to get an echocardiography done to rule out cardiomyopathy that often develops in runners. This is important and should not be ignored. Regarding the rest of the aches, you need to apply hot compress.

Let me know if I could help further.
