Thank you for the query.

Such pain can be caused by spine diseases (like spine disc herniation) which compresses nerves. However it still can be the heart problem as ECG does not rule all possibilities out. To have clear situation with your heart, you should have 24 hours Holters ECG and stress test. If no findings, the next step should be spine MRI.

Hope this will help.
