Customer Question

Hi there,
I work with a trainer twice a week and do weights and cardio. Last Monday (a week and a day) I did do a bit of weights/squats and it hurt a bit, but didn't think much of it. It didn't feel like a huge strain. But all this past weekend and even today today I have been stressing that there is something wrong with my heart because I have experienced some pain and soreness. The pain feels sore like a bruise, but no more than a 1/ it's pretty minimal. But I do get twinges of pain over my entire chest. Very minimal tho.
I am 31, with high blood pressure (something I'm working on)...but
I do have high anxiety (also something I'm working on).
I have been to the ER in the past for my blood pressure (has X-rays and EKGs and 24-HR heart monitors) -- everything is normal other than my BP being reasonably high and I am an anxious person.
Should I be concerned? I have no other symptoms.
