What's the worry?: If your ekg is okay, the troponin t is not rising and is not beyond the reference range, and you have 'a little' chest pain that's not taking your breath away, you are not having a heart attack. That does not mean that you are not sick. A physical exam will let you know whether this is just chest wall pain as from overexertion, or whether to look farther.

No: Enzymes rise and fall at the time of a heart attack. Only enzymes in the abnormal range are diagnostic. All your values are normal so there is no reason to be concerned. High normal values are normal values.
