This isn't recognized as a likely side-effect of Escitalopram. Depression itself does tend to amplify pains and other symptoms, whatever their original causes. I'm relieved to hear that you are seeing a physician, presumably a cardiologist, for a proper physical investigation of whether there is any significant actual physical disorder present. If this is not found, then the problem may well be a form of hat used to be called hypochondriasis, in which, in a form of anxiety disorder, one's anxiety comes to be focused on concern that there may be a physical illness present ; and through muscle tensions, etc, causing pains in the area that concern us, this seems to provide proof of the existence of such physical illness, when it fact it is proving the existence of the focused anxiety.
A good psychologist should help you to explore and gain control of the anxiety and the pains.
