Can a pain around left collar bone have any indication of a heart problem ?

Can a pain around left collar bone have any indication of a heart problem? I am 31 weeks pregnant, and been noticing this for a couple days alongside with some tingling/annoyance in left arm.. I KNOW to consult my doctor but I dont like to go run for every little thing- I do suffer from anxiety/panic disorder so I always think something. Or yes, possibly just pain caused by my back?- ( I did have scoliosis surgery 6 years ago and of course is hurting nowbeing pregnant with weight gain) I did have an echo done 2 months ago-- all clear

Given your age, it is unlikely that this is a heart problem. It sounds like they are following you closely, and an echocardiogram would be the first thing our doctors would do to evaluate for any potential problem. Since you've already had this done, and have been given the "thumbs up" then I'd say you're good to go! I would mention your discomfort to your doctor at your next prenatal appointment, and of course if it gets worse, you should go be seen sooner.
