Dear Ma'm
Thanks for your query to HCmagic
A pain which is there at rest and does not come up on exertion, Which lasts for less than a minute, which changes site frequently , which is there the whole day with same intensity, is not likely to be cardiac.
Moreover a female who is not smoker, non diabetic with regular menses , not on OCPs and not on steroid therapy is very unlikely to have anginal heart disease.
Flickering of blood pressure, when commensurate with level of physical/mental stress is acceptable, unless the variations were extreme.
Other possible causes can be a pain from upper gastro-intestinal tract, pain from bone/soft tissue/ nerves or pain from lung or its coverings.
Relax, as literature favors you, for a possible non-cardiac cause
Feel free to discuss further.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The description does not suggest heart pain
Your age and sex are also against it.
You have not stated your personal habits, family history or co-morbidities - smoking?
Get yourself examined / have basic investigations...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
