I am a 29 year old female. I am healthy and work outregularly. I get a mild jaw pain that comes and goes. I haveno arm or chest pain. Could it be heart attack?

Unlikely. Jaw pain, especially if it occurs more in the morning can be due to biting down or grinding your teeth. It can also be produced by dental work that alters your bite, though the intermittency of your symptoms suggest things like teeth grinding or biting down from stress.
