Cardiologist 's  Response

I would agree with you on the fact that your daily work could exacerbate the situation. For this reason, I would recommend taking a couple of weeks of rest and trying to avoid straining physical activity. If the pain persists, I would recommend performing an X-ray study of this region.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
