Chest pain around bottom of rib cage while relaxing, left arm pain. Should I be worried?

I am a 22 year old male and when I got home from work this evening I sat down to relax and felt a pain on the left side of my chest around the bottom of my rib cage. It seemed to also have a pulse which has slowed down during the past hour and is similar to my heartbeat now. I no longer feel the much pain and the rhythm now is similar to my heartbeat. Is there any cause for concern? Yesterday my upper left arm started hurting and has continued but responds somewhat to Advil .

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

The chest pain you experienced around your rib cage after you came back from work tired, might be due to pressure arising out of gastric derangements or due to muscular contraction.
Heart related pain has several other associated symptoms. Even your left arm pain may not be associated.
Just have an after thought. go through the events that happened prior to that incident and food you had on that day. You will get the answer.
Good luck.
