Many thanks for posting on the ehealth forum. I am glad to help you out. I can understand the pain and agony you are going through. The chances of a serious chest ailment at your age are less.

I’ll suggest getting a stress echocardiography also done to rule out any heart problem as the cause of the chest pain. Once that’s also ruled out, it could possibly be due to anxiety or muscle ache only and thus nothing much to worry.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
