Anesthesia ; Surgery: Some medications used during induction of surgery can cause muscle pain, and should start to resolve within 7 days.

Many possibilities: Wow - this might be nothing, or it could be a catastrophe. Sure, that narrows it down, right? Without more information it is pointless to speculate.

If you are not, just know that it could be something serious - so in the end, it is safest to get evaluated.See 3 more doctor answers

Angina! Stop smoking!: This is a warning sign that you have structural heart damage (HEART DISEASE) that is probably caused by smoking tobacco products. Smoking tobacco releases toxins, in addition to nicotine, which causes damage to the vessels around the heart. The instantaneous "spasm" of blood vessels limits blood flow to the heart muscle, causing chest pain. Your body is trying to tell you something. See a doctor!See 1 more doctor answer
Chest pain: I don't know what your cardiac cath showed. If it showed no blockage the pain is most likely not angina. There are other things that cause chest pain. Even a bad gallbladder can do it.
