Hi,
How are you? Do you still experience the chest pain that you mentioned and were you able to have this checked by your doctor? While this could be a side effect, it could also be due to cardiac issues that needs to be ruled out especially if there is history of hypertension.  This is the primary reason why you have this checked by your doctor first for proper management. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep us posted and best regards.
