Thank you for your question, if you have high blood pressure and cholesterol levels and you are having chest pain then best option is to proceed with stress ECG or ETT to make sure it is not a heart pain or angina, if this test was already done and was normal then there is no need to worry as it is not a heart pain. In this case medicine like tylenol and advil will help also changing your sitting position or chair may also help to alleviate the pain. Thank you.
