I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
You have history of heart disease.
The mid chest heaviness and constricting feeling is typical of angina attack.
Nitroglycerin or rest will typically relieve this type of attacks.
how long the symptom lasted?
did you have this before?
did you do any physical activity before the symptom?
did you have any heart work up recently?
see this can be an angina attack.
other possibility can be acid reflux, anxiety.
But, I will first rule out any heart problem.
A stress test should be considered.
And meanwhile, if possible, EKG and cardiac enzymes should be considered in the ER.
that is reassuring.
Still does not rule out heart problem completely though.
But, imminent danger is unlikely.
Yes I understand that.
Ok--Let's make a plan.
If the pain comes back then definitely you should.
If not, then contact your doctor and arrange for a stress test at the earliest.
that can be also heart related or GERD related.
