Our expert says:
It is highly unlikely that your chest pain is due to a cardiac problem. Myocardial infarction is a short stabbing pain, severe in intensity, only lasts for a couple of minutes and alleviates with rest. Consult your doctor to determine if you are suffering from costo-condritis (inflammation between the ribs and chest bone). If necessary, your doctor can ask for a stress ECG to evaluate your heart function.
