In brief: Unlikely

Heart issues at your age are rare, especially in light of your fall history.
May represent a rib fracture or spine fracture near thoracic nerve root . If not acute changes over the last 8 months, then schedule appointment with your doctor. If a sudden change occurs or shortness of breath develops then report to ER
