Not heart or lung related.

Should I worry about the pain on my leg and foot?

That is also muscle pain.

You may be dehydrated and have magnesium deficiency.

Please start magnesium supplement 400 mg daily, rink plenty of fluids.

You can take over the counter ibuprofen 600 mg 3 times daily as needed for pain relief.
