chest discomfort

I am a 17 year old girl, almost 5'5, 54 kg. The last friday I took an exercise but not that intense I did a cardio workout but after that nothing happened to me.. the next day of course I felt some muscle pain in my legs that night I took an intense workout including working my biceps and triceps.. it's the first time I tried to exercise my biceps and triceps.. after a few hours of my exercise I felt something uncomfortable in my chest upper left. it's not painful but it's just not a normal feeling for me.. then suddenly I thought maybe this was a symptom of something.. I researched if is this a sign of heart disease. when I read that the symptoms are shortness of breath, cold sweat, weakness or coldness in the arms and legs after reading all those maybe I got anxious and experience those I tried to just take a rest but I could sleep well because I was thinking that maybe I'll have a heart disease! when I woke up I feel numb! my hands and my face feels numb so I went to the doctor.. they took an ECG of me then they said that it was normal.. and heart diseases usually occur during childhood or 30 years old and above.. after hearing that I feel relieved.. but after a few hours again .. I feel uncomfortable with my chest again but the feeling was not the same anymore but it was not painful.. could this be just a muscle pain in the chest because it's the first time i did an intense work out and not a sign of heart disease?

It sounds like you may have just strained a muscle and then tensed up on top of it worrying about what was going on.  Try not to fret over it.  It should go away but if you notice it keep happening then just go back to the doctor to get checked out more fully though odds are if there was an issue something would have been seen on the ecg so you are likely ok.  But maybe take your exercising down a notch.  Work your way up to the intense stuff instead of going full throttle right off the bat.  Give your muscles a chance to build up strength before asking them to go all out.  Take care.
