Tricky: Chest pains are tough, is it a muscle strain or something more serious? Unfortunately you have to run through the hamster wheel of cardiac testing to assure you are not having heart issues. Myself and my father have both gone through this in the past 18 months and i know how frustrating all the testing can be. Definately go get checked and hopefully it is just muscle issues, good luck.
