In brief: Discuss with ur doc

Hard to say. If it lasts for a few seconds only it is generally not worrisome.
It is reassuring that your stress test is normal but these tests are good in about 85% of patients (65% if it is a plain tradmill stress test). Your doctor should decide if further testing is needed based upon your probability of having heart disease (type of pain, age, gender and other risk factors).

In brief: Heart or not

It still could be heart ( no test is perfect), or rib cage pain or a pinched nerve or other non heart issues.
Ask your primary care physician.
