Probable not: Sounds like musculoskeletal. Hear rate in 40s not normal for most people.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Agree. A low heart rate will not cause pain.

If you are exercising very vigorously ( remember President Bush) then you may have Low Heart rate, but usually in low 50s. But this low rate of 40/minutes may cause Light headedness not chest pain.
