Sudden tightness in chest can be associated with possible causes like Cardiac disease,Gastroesophageal reflux disease.

You should take OTC Aspirin and Prilosec now.

And hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

If your symptoms are getting worse over the time then visit ER for prompt management.

EKG must be done in your case.

Hope this helps.
