Thanks for the question. I would like to have few important details. Any history of diabetes or high blood pressure or past history of heart disease? Any shortness of breath? Any radiation of pain to the arm or jaw? How long you have this pain?

It seems that you are having difficulty in coming back or replying. I would like to say that it is very important to investigate heart disease especially angina at the earliest which can present like that. Also important to rule out possibilities such as diffuse esophageal spasm, aortic dissection, costochondritis. I will highly advise to see your physician or preferably visit ER soon as possible as this can be serious very important to rule out heart disease at the earliest. I will suggest these tests such as Heart EKG, chest x-ray. Let me know if you have any further question. Best wishes.
