Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
First of all no need to worry for any major heart or lung related diseases for your pain because all your reports are normal.
Possibility of musculoskeletal pain is more likely.
So follow these steps for better symptomatic relief in musculoskeletal pain.
1. Avoid heavyweight lifting and strenuous exercise.
2. Avoid movements causing pain.
3. Take painkiller and muscle relaxant drugs like ibuprofen and thiocolchicoside.
4. Avoid sudden jerky movements of chest.
5. Apply warm water pad on affected areas of chest and groin.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
