In brief: Probable not

Sounds like musculoskeletal.
Hear rate in 40s not normal for most people.

Agree. A low heart rate will not cause pain.

If you are exercising very vigorously ( remember President Bush) then you may have Low Heart rate, but usually in low 50s. But this low rate of 40/minutes may cause Light headedness not chest pain.
