Suggest treatment for chest pain

I have a constant ache in my chest, mostly center and right side. AS if I have overused the muscles. It is worse with use of my right arm, especially if I lift it. If I touch my chest I feel bruised. The bruised-achey sensation is under my arms as well, more on the right side. I have developed a mild earache that has recently worsened and the right side of my face is tingly numb at the cheek and jaw area. I have had a battery of heart tests, all showing more or less normal results. I do have very low oxygen levels when doing any activity (82%) such as standing up and walking down a hallway. My cardiologist is trying to figure this all out, but I am between appointments. It has been two months since I have seen her, and I feel worse and worse.
I am female, 50 years old, I have type 2 diabetes, (recent A1C 5.7) hypothyroidism both well managed with medication. My diet is outstandingly healthy, mostly vegetarian, and as organic and homemade as I can afford. I have in a year brought my cholesterol levels from the 250 range into the 140 range. What is your opinion of my symptoms?

Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of musculoskeletal pain is more likely because you are having pain on movement and specific positions.
No need to worry for heart diseases as your reports are normal.
So follow these steps for better symptomatic relief in musculoskeletal pain.
1. Avoid movements causing pain.
2. Avoid heavyweight lifting and strenuous exercise.
3. Avoid sudden jerky movements of chest and arm.
4. Take simple painkiller and muscle relaxant drugs like ibuprofen and thiocolchicoside.
5. Apply warm water pad on affected areas of chest.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these in 1-2 weeks.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
