Hi Melanie.

We can be very sure the pains that you describe are not from your heart. It is not quite so easy to say what the pain is due to, but it sounds musculo-skeletal pain, possibly from your neck. You don’t mention your age, but the pain sounds very benign.

If you are concerned, by all means have some simple tests like a chest x-ray. However I would avoid starting a long wild goose chase after the cause of the pain, which is very unlikely to produce a definite result. Most often this kind of pain simply disappears of its own accord.

Best wishes, JT.
