Moving which: triggers pain. If moving or touching the jaw gives the pain it isnt heart. If moving the heart (running/exercise/stress) triggers jaw pain .. especially if it is with shortness of breath, then perhaps it might be heart. Franly I tend to go with overall percentages and heart trouble in 20 year olds is quite uncommon
