Brief Answer:
Here is some points on cardiac pains.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to Health Care Magic, Thanks for writing to us,

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad, I have read your question, I understand your concern and will try to help you in the best possible way.

You sysmptoms are not typical for a heart issue still i will tell you know how heart pains feel like then i guess you will have a better idea what is there in you and what is not.

Cardiac pains:


1- They are NEVER sharp excruciating pains,they are dull pains like soar muscles or a compression.

2- They start with work out and go away as you are at rest.

3- When its paining they in most case get relieved by a nitroglycerin tab under tongue.

4- Regular "work out cardiac pains" (angina) usually show up in stress testing.

5- They are very rarely present in men below 40.

6- They never Get worsened by food intake, they stay the same.

7- They don't change in intensity with breathing. Or changing body position.

8- They can not be pinpointed usually they are spread over an urea of chest.

9- Usually less than 30 mins in duration.

You pain can be muscular or it can be cardiac , just see what among above mentioned points fits in your pain and what doesn't?

Here i will also mention that there are large arteries in arm and groin if you are feeling pulsations it can be psychological or it can be due to some atherosc;erosis or arterial disease problem.

How has your cholesterole and BP been?

What is your height and weight?

Have you got cardiac checkup lately?
