Welcome to Health care Magic. Thank you for posting your question.
I can understand your concern.

I went through the details . What I can understand is that you are very anxious about this . Do not worry.
See, if you are anxious , this anxiety can itself manifest as tremors of the hand , sweating, jaw pain , pain in stomach , chest pain and the increased heart rate and palpitation.

I would suggest you to get an Electrocardiogram (ECG) done as soon as possible.

Get back to us or visit a clinician if you have chest pain or palpitations or breathlessness or skipped beats. He/she can examine you and correlate clinically.

Hope this helps.

Post any other question. We will be happy to help.
Have a nice day. Regards.
