jaw pain

I am a 40 year old female.  I am on taztia xt 360mg for slightly high blood pressure and pulse.  They are both completely normal now.  For the last 3 or 4 weeks,  I have been having pain in the left jaw, mainly in the joint area.  I believe it may be tmj disorder, and I have an appointment to get tested for that on Thursday.  But with all the info out there about women and their different heart disease and heart attack symptoms, it worries me a little bit.  I have had an echocardiogram, a nuclear stress test, a coronary angiogram, and numerous ekg's in the last year.  All of them are normal except for a slight irregularity on the ekg, which precipitated the stress test and echocardiogram.  The angiogram was done because of about 4 episodes of chest pain earlier this year. Even the enzyme tests were completely normal.  My question is, with all of these normal coronary tests, what are the chances that the jaw pain is actually heart related and not tmj related?
