RA and PTCA

I was detected with RA couple years back. Since then i'm under treatment of RA. Meantime I underwent  PTCA to LAD on June 12th. After couple of days of the PTCA i'm having pain on my left chest and then moves to my upper back and upper part of left arm. This pain seems not so severe but lasts for few hours and when stops my chest feels so light.  When the pain was complained after PTCA i had series of ECG and the doctors said the heart is ok. But why i'm having this pain? Is it something due to RA? Should i go to my cardiologist or to the RA doc? Pls help me
