Likely or possible?: It is likely musculoskeletal (given brief history provided), but your symptoms are fairly nonspecific and could run the gamut from benign to life-threatening. For it to be your heart, given your age (and without other risk factor availability), i would think it is unlikely this is your heart; however, i would followup with your physician to provide a more in-depth discussion.
