Heart not likely: Your symptoms are not typical for heart. Most likely they are musculoskeletal in origin with many other possible causes possible as well. Keeping a log with your symptoms, including activities may only help in trying to identify a possible pattern. Having workup should help in clarifying. Anxiety is usually part of the complex.
