    Heart pain usually isn't felt where the heart is. Its usually felt in the middle of the chest, down the arm, up the jaw and the upper back and its like a crushing/heavy pain. The pain you're feeling is most likely muscular especially if it hurts more when you press on it or move or stretch and if you have had it for a few hours or days. Heart pain usually only lasts 30 mins to an hour. If its still hurting or worrying you tomorrow, then I'd advise making an appt with your GP. If it gets any worse tonight though, you can always ring up NHS-111/NHS-24 for advice.
