Normal heart rate: range is 40-120. Lower in fit people who exercise and higher in poorly conditioned individuals. A low heart rte is only clinically significant when it is associated with symptoms such as dizziness, syncope, shortness of breath or exertional restriction.

Muscle pain: If ekg and stress are normal, you are unlikely to have heart disease. It appears you may have a muscle sprain or strain. See your doc.
