Chest Pain and Elevated Heart Rate

I am a 26 year old female and I started having upper chest pain on my left side and in my collarbone area 5 days ago well 2 days I started having bad pain in my breast bone/middle of my chest so I went to the ER.  They did blood work, chest x ray, ekg, my heart rate was elevated at one point it was 116, it did go down by the time I left the ER.  The doctor said my heart was fine I wasn't having a heart attack and diagnosed me as having costochondritis, but could it be my heart? I just don't have a lot of faith in doctors and I just wanna be sure.

Unless you have heart disease in your family at such a young age, the doctor's diagnosis seems reasonable.  I have had it after colds, and it did go away.
